I recently went to JCP'S to help a sister shop for a baby shower gift...mostly just to tag along...cuz how hard is it really? Well...narrowing it down is the hardest part. Everything is sooooo cute! Anyway I came across this cute knit pom hat. Who hasn't found something knit or crochet and said "Hey, I can knit that!" Yeah. So I had it on the brain and am working to use up my stash. So I kinda loosely wrote up a pattern for an ADULT size and started straight away. Took me one day! With 2 strands of worsted and size 13 needles. 2 huge pom poms later and wallah! I wasn't aware of how heavy the poms would be. It's still cute but I'd make em smaller if I made again. Since I can't figure out how to place image under this section...it's located at very bottom of this post.

Wow! I'll be honest..I've seriously been neglecting my blog. :( Around March this year my family had fallen on hard times when my husband was layed off from his 10 year job and we lost our home. So we were scrambling to get situated and back into a home. It was tough but we managed. And here I am. Through it all I made sure to keep my needles out of storage and was even donated yarn in order to keep my sanity! Thanks to all those who worked hard to keep my family going both spiritually and mentally! I was busy knitting up slippers, cowls, and even a shawl during this time. I will try to dig up those pictures to share. Also since we've moved I've been finishing up a few WIP ' S as well as some new items! Sit back with a cuppa and take a gander at these pics. :)
