Hats and Carolina Snow Shoes

I finally got pictures of the hats I made for the girls. I think they turned out good, but Becca-Lynn's is a little too big. At least she won't outgrow it anytime soon!

I took the pics on Saturday before we went out in the snow. We don't (usually) get much snow here, so the girls were really excited. I'm surprised they stood so still!

Since we don't get snow much, I've never really thought to make sure the girls have appropriate foot wear. Luckily Meadow had some boots that fit her, but Becca-Lynn's current shoes are a pair of pink Converse, definitely not waterproof. So, what does a crafty North Carolinian do to keep her feet dry? Wear plastic bags under her shoes of course! It works like a charm. Plus, it keeps your pants from getting wet too. I do plan to invest in some nice, waterproof boots next year though. (watch it not snow a bit) :)

Crochet Baby Hat

I had this yarn left over and thought it would make a cute hat for Meadow. Unfortunately, I grossly over-estimated the amount of yarn. It is an adorable hat (if I do say so myself), but it definitely will not fit Meadow! lol If only I had a baby to wear it.... Needless to say, it will be going in my shop.

There isn't much to say about it construction wise. It's a basic single crochet hat with a flower. I love making these, they're easy but still adorable. It's made from all natural wool and is super soft!
