knitted bonnet


My original intention for the hat was knitting it for the new babe. I even bought unisex color yarn because we don't know the sex yet. Somehow it fits Kate! Clearly, I am a beginner. It turned out cute in a funky, pioneer sort of way. Hopefully she can get some wear out of it this winter. And if anything, I learned how to knit an i-cord with double pointed needles. Baby steps. The pattern was on loan from my friend Becca, who got it out of this book. It really is a beautiful book with pretty pictures. And if you're only a sewer, check out their other book, with sewing projects. Remember peanut?

Oh my heck Jill! I had no idea you were so crafty. I should've guessed after seeing Kate's room and all the fun things you've done in here. I am SO impressed. And I had no idea that you'd made Kate's red poka dot dress I photographed. That makes those pictures even cuter to me. Wonderful work. I've looked through all your past posts. It's too bad we've now across the country. There's so much you could've taught me...

Jill, you are so talented! So inspirational! I love the highchair and jumper, and that jacket at Purl Bee is SUPER cute. Love it.

good afternoon everyone. I'm actually into shoes and I had been looking for the sake of that meticulous make. The prices as regards the boots are around 190 bucks on every site. But definitively I bring about this location selling them for the benefit of half price. I really love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably purchase those. what do you think?

good afternoon everyone. I'm really into shoes and I have been searching as far as something that singular model. The prices for the velcros were all over 320 pounds everwhere. But completely I found this location selling them as a remedy for half price. I exceptionally like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order these. what is your opinion?
