I decided it was time to make Ireland a new hat.
Ireland has a grey and pink sock monkey hat that she wears all the time. I made it for her last year and basically got tired of seeing her wear it every single day. Don't get me wrong, I love that she loves it and wants to wear it. I just wanted to see her in something new. Since she's a Hello Kitty Fan, I started making this hat for her last week.
When I almost had it finished, I showed it to her...I just couldn't help myself. Guess what she said... I wanted a piggy hat. Grrrr.... (I did remember her telling me in the recent past that she wanted a piggy hat) I didn't let that comment stop me. I sewed the ears, face, and whiskers on and then showed it to her. By that time she had warmed up to the idea of having a Hello Kitty hat and was so excited.
Now she loves it and tells everybody she sees that her mommy made her hat for her. That makes me feel so happy.
I'm still pondering over the piggy hat. Maybe...maybe next year.
After making the Elise shawl, I have decided to make another shawl with Noro (Uugghh, that's another post on another day). I'm looking for a good pattern...any suggestions?
For now I'm going to write up the Hello Kitty Hat pattern :D
