A little crochet

A lovely little-lady sun hat!  

Sweet P. really needed a sunhat going into summer.  I looked high and low, near and far.  I finally found a few, but not what I was looking for.  Oddly enough, most of the hats I found did not have straps!  Show me a little one who actually will leave their hat on their little head...  I also found some nice hats online, but have you noticed the cost of shipping lately?


I decided to go through the stash and find some cotton to make a little hat.   Add a little ruffle, and then a little something girly about it, and ta-da!  There it is.  Our new sunhat.   It was fun to play and put this together.  I didn't have a pattern and decided to wing-it.  Let the creative juices flow!  Now when it's 100 degrees out  this is a little much, but good for morning gardening, etc. 

You see that?  Trying to take it off already!  She actually likes hats, but there is much to be enjoyed about donning and doffing at this age.  

Well, I just wanted to say 'hi' and share this little bit of hooking with you.  I hope you have a lovely day.  Somehow a germ has made it's way into our home and we all have  a touch of a cold this week and aren't ourselves.  Young Man loves a good 'sick day'.  He says it's the only time we get to lay around and watch movies, lol.  I guess there is an upside to everything!
