Week 15: Summer must be coming soon.....

Hey Folks!  I did finish last week's hat in time...just barely. I finished it at about 9:30 Sunday night, but didn't get around to a photo shoot until today.

I worked on a good chunk of that hat on Sunday--during lunch at the Vintage.  Yes, that is a cheese curd in my Bloody Mary. Oh, how I love Wisconsin!

The creation for week 15 was a floppy brimmed sun hat. I had Squeaker out in the garden and realized that his face wasn't shaded at all. As the kid will be spending a lot of time out in the garden and in the bike trailer, a sun hat was definitely in order. 

 I think this should fit the bill!

 It has a nice floppy brim, but doesn't seem to bother him.

 It has a nice picot-edging to the brim and a super long I-cord forming the ties.
I love the color! It's Peruvian cotton...oooh.....aahhh. It should be perfect for a summer outdoors!

Take care,
PS Here's the pattern if you're interested: http://www.etsy.com/listing/73416045/baby-sun-hat-pattern-knit?ref=pr_shop

Oh my goodness, look at that grin! What a sweetheart!

The hat is a sweet little one, too.

Super cute! Love the edging. And he looks so so so happy in it! He's ready to play outside!

He looks like a cabbage patch kid! Here's to hoping he doesn't get lost in the garden! I LOVE the colors!
