Crafty Business & Patience

We didn’t spend the entire weekend just cooking and eating. We finally made it out to the grocery store as a family. This excursion on Saturday was only the second time she has ever been to a grocery store in her LIFE. Every pumpkin and mum plant was Sophia’s to touch. She loved it.

… but I digress …

Besides shopping for groceries, cooking them and eating them, I also got quite crafty with my new yarn and knitting needles. I’ve been in a rush to knit some vests for Sophia to wear at home because it gets very cold in our family room and then, I decided to knit a hat, too. No, not to wear indoors, though I am sure those who know me would wonder if I now want her to start wearing hats inside, too. I am a bundler-mom. I bundle my poor child to no end.

Those who know me also know that I am the world’s most impatient person. And just in case you were thinking that I was kidding about being impatient, here are the fruits of my labor sans buttons and with extra yarn still attached. You’ll have to forgive me.


I know, I know, the hat is a bit big. It can actually fit me. But… it will last more than one season and keep her ears warm. The color of the yarn is actually grey (Iceland gray), so the pictures aren’t hiding anything.



The hat took me just a few hours and the vest maybe two days split over two weekends. I now going to start on a more ambitious project. Wish me luck!

      Thank you! I may make another one that is one size smaller — time permitting.
