Just In Time for Cooler Weather




What an unusually cool day it is! Usually in Kansas it is either hot or cold, and then a few days in between that are nice.
Here is a little1950s hat that i'm making for winter that also will keep my ears toasty without messing my hair!
Pictures to come.

That's very cute! I plan on knitting something similar to this for the cold winter months. I may line it with flannel. Haven't decided yet.

I need to learn more about crochet. I have a whole bunch of patters from the book Austentatious Crochet. {A book of patterns based on Jane Austen's novels.} And I can't do them yet because I am so illiterate on crochet. :-(

This looks simple enough for me to crochet. It's been years since I've tried, but I think I can handle this! Really cute. . .
