A bit of a girly girl

Posted by on December 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm.

My daughter likes to tell me she’s a cross between a girly girl and a tomboy. I told her that just made her a person that has a lot of interests, and there’s noting wrong with that.

Along with her crafty side, she loves to play sports, collect race cars and trucks, be outdoors, going on insect hunts with me, and she enjoys building with her building blocks, etc.,

When it comes to clothing… she likes to dress down, and she also adores pretty clothes! My daughter enjoys life. It’s so nice to see her doing what she enjoys, and not trying to fit into an inaccurate mold. I was the same way at her age; in fact I still am like that.

This morning, I scoured Ravelry for about an hour looking for a feminine hat. Check out the super cute pattern below…

This just oozes with cuteness!

 

I think I stumbled upon the perfect candidate, don’t you?

My daughter constantly tells me that I need to start posting more of my elaborate knitting projects. I told her, I’d start doing that. This knitted heart hat is designed by Linda Cyr. Isn’t she talented? I’m thrilled that this hat features intarsia knitting (heart design.) Have I ever told you how much I adore designing and following intarsia and fair islepatterns? I promise I’ll try to take more photos of my work, before they are sent away.

I’m going to modify this pattern just a bit… instead of knitting the heart flaps, I’ve decided to crochet them. After all, I find crocheted hearts much nicer than knitted hearts.

My daughter’s eyes became huge when she saw the completed hearts. She loves the hat!

 

My daughter is loving this hat. She thinks she’ll be the hit of her fourth grade class.

I can’t wait to test drive my Hiya Hiya knitting needles

 

In other news…

My first order for the Hiya Hiya needles arrived today. I just ordered this two days ago. How’s that for awesome customer service? I’ll be test driving the Hiya Hiya needles when I make a hat for our angel. I’m tempted to make her the heart hat.
