Hat Weather

Indian Summer has faded away and here in the Shenandoah Valley we have entered into hat weather. This temperature shift compels me to pick up my knitting needles and crochet hooks. Both the kids need new hats and even John could use a new topper. I cannot wait to get my hands on my new yarn from the Plucky Knitter


I plan on fashioning a new hat to match the scarf I knit for myself  last year. I normally try to be a bit more thrifty when it comes to yarn, but theirs is gorgeous and I purchased it as a birthday treat for myself.

On my needles now is a hat for our friends’ newborn boy. Hopefully I’ll have it bound off early this week.239

Recently I finished a delicate mohair bonnet for a photographer friend. The pattern is from one of my favorite designers, Knit in the Womb



Every year I plan on making knit and crochet Christmas gifts over the summer, but somehow this never seems to happen. My hands should be quite busy over the next few months.

What’s on your needles?

    I always do the same thing. Every year I intend to start early, but every year I just can’t bring myself to pick up the needles until the weather cools down. This year I’m making gloves for pretty much…everyone. Also probably a hat for myself and one for my middle child, who has requested a stocking cap. Should be a fun crafting season! 🙂

    Also – holy cow you should not have showed me the Plucky knitter site. I am so severely tempted now.

    Have you ever tried yarn from Alpaca’s? If not you should. There are several farms up your way (we’re down in Florida :)) where you should be able to get some!

    I’m getting ready to start a shawl for the winter month. I got the yarn as a gift last winter and now I’m thinking it’s time to start it. 🙂
