Custom hat AND contest winner!

Isn't this just the cutest looking baby---and hat! A former customer (Susan) recently contacted me to see if I could make this hat for her....sure I said! Well, we scoured the internet and craft stores in search of the most similar yarn we could find....and Susan actually found it. I've never seen a yarn like this before. It is sooo much fun to work with---it stripes and patterns all by itself---no patterns or yarn changes needed---it's MAGIC! Here is is below.

And, here is what I've come up with so far. She wanted the brim and ear flaps to be orange and blue. So, I still have to add the ear flaps and ties and the pom pom on top....but so far so good.... I just hope Susan like it :-)

Of course, I did have to get some for myself for Josie and Quentin.

Also, remember that contest from a few days ago from Mana Moon Studios---the one I hope you all checked out...well, she announced the winner last night, and guess who it was.....drum roll please.....ME!!! Can you believe it? I really had to read the post twice----I was shocked! I never win anything, and to receive such a gift, I'm just thrilled to say the least. Plus, getting my package from Australia this week too---I'll tell you, I'm just on cloud nine!! Whatever did I do to deserve such treasurers this week?

Here is the bracelet I chose from her shop. Don't you just love it? Do you want one too? Here's her etsy store....get shopping!Thank you again---my friend Sharon!
