Eloise has outgrown her hats. For me that shows how much she's grown. She's now in the 3-6 month sized hats. So I made her a hat. She's going purple here. This is one of my signature hats.
I love making hats. I can get one done in an evening and they are cute. So I made a couple more for the shop. They are displayed on cute hat stands that my daughters made along with a couple of crocheted hats that they have made.
I also have another pattern that I wanted to try. I had made Eloise one as a preemie. On this hat I used some Caron Simply Soft yarn that I had had for quite a while. It was time to use it up and since it is so soft I thought it would be great for a hat. But it split up a lot and was a little hard to knit with. So the hat had a couple of flaws. I covered one with a flower. And the other is still there. I couldn't sell that one so Eloise received it also.
And then I tried another of the same style. This is my other signature style. The color isn't traditional, but with the large flower it was really cute. I decided not to give this one to Eloise. My son said he would go sell it to her parents. And he did. He came back with some money and kept a sales commission.
She can look so cute. How babies can sleep in any position.
I made a second hat last evening just like this one. My son says he's going to sell it also (not to Eloise). We'll see how he does.
