~I can't resist making a few new hats every season, so when I had some Sublime yarn leftover from other projects, I decided to look at their patterns (not to mention I own about ten or more of their pattern books--so it was an easy call).
~this hat pattern is from Sublime #613 --the Sublime children's double knitting book. After looking for a project to make up in the new More Last Minute Knitted Gifts book--I realized the pattern is very similar to one in there entitled 'Family Ribbed Hats'--another resource for you.
~these are super quick to knit and I made the blue one while in the caribbean and it took me 2 nights or so. I used sublime extra fine merino wool dk for the hats with a size 3 and 6 US needles.
~C.C. loves to touch the moss in the miniature pots...We made this miniature cement and tile pathway a few years ago and it really lasts year to year...Note to self: learn more about mosses (bryophytes?). I adore them...
~In honor of St. Patrick's day tomorrow...we made some chocolate and mint cookies-- I have a difficult time going all out to celebrate St. Patrick's day since we are not Irish (that I know of...). Here is the history...I usually buy the boys a clover plant and make green food---all kinds!
