What do you think of my new digs? I decided the old blog could use a spruce and decided to get professional help this time. Kate from Smitten Blog Designs took excellent care of me and I am thrilled with the new look. Thanks, Kate!
Last night as it was all being installed, I was poking around with things, reorganizing some labels, and editing my archives. When I first started blogging (all the way back in 2006), I had no idea how to operate a sewing machine. Instead, I was an avid crocheter. In fact, my very first post ever was a crocheted bear hat.
I made a lot of animal hats that winter, but only kept one, which I realized is the perfect size for Oscar now.
This lion hat is kind of funny looking, but I love it. As with all of my animal hats, I just made it up as I went along, so unfortunately there is no pattern to share. But I will try to explain how I made the curly mane.
bear, frog, puppy, hippo, fish, pig, blue tiger (ha!), and monkey hats (but beware of the icky photography).
