A Touch of Cute for Sunday Morning

Tooling around Ravelry looking at FOs has become an addiction. My first line of inquiry is always the activity of my friends. Their projects and the ones they have found never cease to provide entertainment and inspiration. Then I'd randomly search patterns or look at friends of friends. However, recently I discovered the link titled "recently added patterns" on the pattern search page. Oh, boy. Trouble! My queue and favorites lists just keep getting longer.

Well, from all those ideas leapt this precious hat design by CraftyRahRah. (Follow this Ravelry Link for the cutest pictures!) It is the Brrr Baby Beanie she designed for the little toddler of her household. It is offered in both American and UK terms on her blog. I could not resist! Down went the two scarves and two shawls I've been working on and out came a fresh hook. In no time flat there was this! This rather sedate, but still adorable, model is destined for one of the yearly winter hat and scarf drives that pop up everywhere around the holidays. The Moda Dea Washable Wool should be care friendly to whomever gets this precious hat. I know I am going to have to make some more of these and add embellishments like tassels and curly cues.

Sorry, no cute toddler around here to model. You'll just have to use your imagination on this one! Happy Sunday morning everyone. =-)

That is a very cute hat. And I really like the Moda Dea Washable Wool...soft and nice to knit (or crochet!) with. Happy Monday : )

My audiologist keeps his grandpa's WWI pilot's leather hat in his office, and that reminds me of it. Very cool.
