I just finished up an order for three apple hat that are now on their way to Massachusetts for a mom and her two kids to wear while apple picking this fall. They turned out so cute. She wanted them to match her new Gymboree outfits----shown here. I hope she sends me a picture or two!!
I'd have to say that of ALL the hats the different hats that I make, and it's quite a few, the apple is by far my all time favorite. It is actually the first hat I ever made. I was at the local yarn shop one day browsing for more scarf yarn---- all that I had made at the time was scarves---and on top of a shelf was the most precious little baby hat I'd ever seen---a little red apple. I just had to make it---and at the time I had no kids. So, I made this hat and was so proud of myself. I put it in my hope chest for my firstborn. Josie wore it in the hospital, and my son wore one too. They are perfect for boys and girls and I just love the red color. Would you like one too?? You can find them in my Etsy shop here.
I'm going on a little vacation this weekend. My sil---not the one getting married next weekend---but my other one called a few days ago wanting to know if she could watch the kids this weekend at her house. She lives about 3 1/2 hours away. I don't know if she really knows what she is getting herself into, but we agreed and thought we'd go back down memory lane and go to Purdue for the weekend---where we first met our freshman year---while living in the same dorm---yeah for co-ed dorms ;-) Anyways, looking forward to some time alone with my hubby. I'll let you know how it goes when I return next week. Have a great long weekend!!
