I realized the other day as Kessa and I were going out to the library that it was cold and Kessa didn't have any hats anymore!  The ones I made her last year were now WAY too small.  So I started poking around on Ravelry to find some toddler hats.  My first attempt failed miserably.  It looked more like a little pink China hat.  Y'know, like these:

So I kept looking and found a promising pattern.  I pulled out my brown yarn (because it just matches so much!) and tried again.  Success!  It was filled with big stitches for most of it, like hdc and dc so it went a lot faster.  At first Kessa didn't want to wear it when I put it on to make sure it fit, but after I showed it to her in the mirror, she loved it and wore it for most of the day!  She loves looking out our bedroom window and I loved the leaves in the background with her hat and sunflower (which I made awhile back).  Isn't it cute?

 And then BJ told me that his coworker's baby was having a birthday party that night.  Of course, by the time he got home and we ate dinner, it was way too late to go.  So we watched Planet Earth while I crocheted another hat, this time in red.  And then I decided to make a flower to go with it.  I had to play with the pattern to make the various sized flowers and totally made up the circle in the center, but in the end, I was quite pleased.  Part of me really didn't want to give it away.  It's just too cute and festive!  Haha.  Guess I'll just have to make another one for Kessa!

cute cute! i meant to comment below and say how awesome all your canning was. that is amazing! oh and i'll answer your question about sugar soon. but in short, i haven't had any issues substituting natural vs. refined. it helps if you use a recipe that had a natural sugar already written into it. then once you're used to baking like that you can try substituting it in your old recipes. honestly i don't bake very often so i haven't done it a ton. i mostly use natural sweeteners in our oatmeal or in bread making, etc. but yeah i'll try to do a more detailed "how-to" post. keep the questions coming!

Super cute. I've been looking for some crochet patterns for my new little neice who hasn't much hair at all. This is great. Leave it to Tianna to know where to find cute crochet patterns (what don't you do...? I mean really...?)

Yes, please! Blog, blog, blog! I love lapping up everything you teach me. Hahaha. And sugar is really throwing me for a loop. Though, pure maple syrup did me in the other day, too. So, tragically, I don't think it's just being refined that is killing me.

JP ~ is your place. I heart it way too much. I've done hats, flowers, rugs, and stuffed animals from it. Oh, and a hanger cover, I believe. It's just so great! You just have to register.
