Hippity hoppity

Hellloooo everyone! I haven't blogged in a few weeks but I've been keeping busy! I am working on a custom order for a friend (will share when I finish) which involves 2 hats. One is done and the other a few inches into it!

What I want to share today is my little spring idea. St. Patrick's day was fast approaching, so I nixed coming up with an idea for that, so I moved onto the next holiday..... Easter! Whipped up two sweet little baby bunny hats. The pattern is from Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson, who comes up with the CUTEST ideas ever! I own three of her books if that is any indication!!!!

I went stash diving to find some organic and soft yarns, since these are both sized about 0-3 months (although I constantly wish I had friends who could bring their babies over at the drop of a hat so I could try my hats on them! ha!). The first one is a bright springy pink, and it's an organic wool and organic cotton blend. Heavenly to knit with and it's super soft and smooth!

I mean, adorbs, right???? :D

The second one I used a 100% organic cotton blend in a soothing cream color. I couldn't decide whether or not to tie up the ears with bows, so I listed it with either option! What do you think? It's cute in its simplicity but is it too plain? I sort of love the green ribbon on it myself. Hmm.

 I know the first day of spring is this week but the weather is not quite convinced!!!!! I was able to get outside for a run today which hasn't happened in awhile, so that was nice... still I can't wait for some warmer weather.... dreaming of playing outside and park trips and sunshine on my face!

Have a great week everyone! :)
