hats! hats! hats for sale!

don't you just love that book? it's been ages since i've read it, but i was thinking of it as i was deciding on a title for this post. fairly appropriate, don't ya think?

so, as you can see, i've been busy these past few weeks. as i wrote to a friend on facebook, i just started not too long ago, but i'm *hooked*.  it all started with those cute newborn striped pompom hats. i knit about a dozen or so. then i found more online that i thought "i could do that". and so it blossomed....quite literally with all those flowers sprouting all over the place. and unbelievably, they only take a little over a couple hours to finish. that is if i am able to just sit down and do them. however, life is often not like that. like for real, what mom can actually just sit down for a couple hours without distractions or some kind of emergency flying in her face? seriously! it just doesn't happen. not around here anyway. i can't even get thru a movie without something luring me away. something that i forgot to do or take care of before i sat down. something that *needs* to be done immediately. something that probably could have waited til later. but with my mind going in 70 different directions at any given moment, i tend to forget if i don't do it immediately. which is why i don't get to sit thru a movie without getting up at least 5 times. then of course, that leads to other distractions, and before i know it, josey is asking "can i start the movie again or should i wait for you to come back?"  ooops! sorry.  back to the movie for another 20 minutes or so, at which point i'm on the move again.

but this is post is not supposed to be about my distracted mind, or my lack of concentration. it's supposed to be about the hats. so far i've created the striped newborn pompom hats in almost every color combination imaginable, plus all the other hats you see here. however, the black one, the purple one, and the pink one are gone already. those were actually done as gifts. but i wanted to put their pics up to show possibilities for other hats i can make. i'm sure i'll create others very similar in other color combos. so if anyone is interested in getting one (or a few) for their daughter(s), or even as gifts, just let me know. right now i'm fairly new at this thing so i won't be charging a whole lot at this point. so if you get them now, the prices are fairly reasonable. anywhere between $5 and $12, depending on difficulty and time and yarn. the newborn ones are $5, and the others are the other prices. they seriously only take little over 2 hours, so i could have them to you within a day or 2 for a 2-3 hats, longer for more (as long as no emergencies emerge--and if that were the case, i would let you know asap). like i said, any color combination, for pretty much any size child. i will also be starting on boys hats soon. they just aren't in the making yet. except the newborn ones of course.

so, if you are interested, please either comment here or on fb with your color combo and style, or if you have a different style in mind with a photo, email it to me and i will let you know if it's a possibility.
