Birthday Cake For Grace

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! I had such a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends. Still recovering actually! I did find the time to make a special hat for my cousin's first birthday. It's just perfect, isn't it? I love it and can't wait to see her in it!


Pattern Source: "Birthday Cake" from Itty-Bitty Hats
Yarn: Reynolds, Saucy
Needles: size 6
Size: 1 year
Notes: I tacked the candle on top really lightly so after her birthday, they can cut it off and use the ruffled base for an everyday hat.

What a sweet hat - and great idea tacking on the candle lightly so she can keep using this sweet thing! Nice job, again!

Ok, that's it. That hat is too much! I'm marching down to the yarn shop tomorrow to get some lessons. Once and for all, I'm going to learn to knit. I might have an anxiety attack, but I'm going to do it.
Smiles,

I always try to post comments to you but they never work....I am trying again. Jill, you are an artist in your own right. Seriously YUMMY stuff on here. I love these hats. Can I order some from you for the studio for my babes. I wish I knew you WHEN(when I was still having babies).

LOVE YOUR STUFF!!!
