New Hat and New Dress

14 Nov

J. has been asking for a new knit hat since cooler weather has come our way and since baseball hats don’t keep his ears warm. He requested to have hat just like his dad’s knit hat.

Using one skein of Spud & Chloë  Sweater yarn and this pattern, J. has a brand spanking new winter hat.


J. was so anxious to wear it, so I didn’t get a chance to block the hat before he wore it to pre-school last week.

Over the weekend, I made H. a Thanksgiving dress using the Oliver + S Apple Picking Dress pattern and organic cotton from Cloud 9.

For the past year or so, I have found myself being drawn to combinations of mustard and blue and mustard and gray. The Berry Bush and the Splinters prints from Heather Moore’s Cut Out & Keep, Cloud 9 collection were must haves.

H. really likes her new dress and wore it to a birthday party this weekend where she managed to get pink cupcake icing smeared all over it. H. likes this pattern so much, she has already requested me to make her another one to match S.’s.
