A few weeks ago, Aidan accompanied me to the craft store. He's always up for a good Joann's run. We were wandering around looking at all the fun treasures when he informed me that he was going to need a new "fall hat". He calls it a "fall hat" because last year's hat was autumn leaf-colored. He very specifically requested a blue hat with a red ceramic button. We found a pretty blue, wool blend yarn on sale and a highly-overpriced red ceramic button.
I used a super simple pattern from my favorite hat book, Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. The book has tons of awesome hats. Many are beyond my skill level; but they are fun to look at nonetheless. I've made several hats for the kids from this book. I'm looking forward to trying some of the tiny baby hats for Annalise this winter.
