It has been a looooooooong time since I have made anything.  In fact, I think the last time I had the opportunity to sit down and finish a project, I was on bed rest...almost 6 months ago.  I don't know how all of these new moms have time to make things, and blog about them,  and take care of their newborns.  Maybe they don't also have full-time jobs.  Maybe they have nannies.  Maybe they are super women....or aliens....I just don't know.  But for me, necessity bred some creativity a couple of months ago when Micah needed a warm, winter hat and I couldn't find one anywhere.  (Sometimes I feel like living in Hilton Head is like living in a third-world country when it comes to finding things for kids.... especially winter clothes.  There are very few resources here for little ones living in this retirement community.)  So, I searched the internet and found this pattern for free via Soule Mama.  If you can knit, pearl, and sew a seam, you can make this adorable hat.  The way this shapes itself is so cool!  I used some inexpensive poly-blend worsted-weight yarn that someone gave me, and knit this up in a couple of evenings.  This little hat is warm, soft, and oh-so-cute on my little man's crooked head.  He is a cute little (drooling) model isn't he?
