Smilin' at the Simple Stuff
This is my latest knitting project - a squared off baby hat with tassles on the side, knitted in camoflague with an orange stripe so other hunters will see him. Never too early to be ready to go hunting with Daddy, who will hopefully have a semi-matching hat by the time Santa shows up (I think we'll hold off on the tassles for his.) (This is another pattern from Itty Bitty Hats, by Susan B. Anderson - love that book!)
Momma saw it modeled when she dropped Landon off today, and thinks Daddy may question the tassles, saying they somewhat resemble pigtails.... I personally don't see a little girl wearing this anytime soon. It's not even pink for pete's sake.
Just to be safe, we took a survey as we grocery shopped together, and the vote was unanimous - 'great hat' was heard over and over. People just smiled when they saw him wearing this.
So we're sliding back into life with simple stuff, like hats that make baby faces look nice and pudgy, just like they should. Best part of all - he liked wearing it!
