As the seasons change, so do my hobbies. When the leaves start to change I am inspired to create some new pint size hats. Occasionally I will find a summer theme to knit into a hat. I never know what a hat is going turn into until it is almost finished. They take on different personalities, whether it may be fruit, seasonal, or just topped with a bow. This page is dedicated to my hats and their unique personalities.
(And some bears I made for special friends!)
After our trip this summer to the Oregon coast I got the idea for this hat. We found some beautiful tide pools filled with sea life. I loves the starfish and found a way to incorporate it into a hat. I haven't decided yet if I am going to add some more sea life to this hat. I call this one "Tide Pool."
Some good friends of mine just welcomed a new baby boy into their lives. They own a horse training operation and the colors of their farm are red, white, and blue. It was around the 4th of July that I made this hat so I was inspired by fireworks and the American flag and it just worked perfectly for their new baby.
Work in progress: I am planning on adding a picot edge and white and teal dots.
