The red hats

What I learned this week: when you have two toddlers on a playground for the first time in months, there is a zero percent chance that they won't run in opposite directions the minute they are unbuckled from their stroller. 

The solution?  Knit two totally obnoxious hats, a la Ronald McDonald's hair.  Picking them out of a crowd is suddenly no longer a problem. 

And if you think it's a little late in the season to be knitting hats, this is what I'm up against: 68 degrees yesterday, 30 degrees and snow today.  Weather here in Chicago sure is grand.

Something else I learned this week:  I'm going to be featured on Sew it to Me tomorrow.  I feel so cool.

Happy weekend everyone!



  1. Love the colour of the hats! I do this to my kids as well, if we're going somewhere crowded, they always get red jumpers or t-shirts so I can spot them easily.

  2. Great solution with the hats. Grew up in the midwest so TOTALLY understand your weather. Oh, and I won't tell you that it was 74 degrees here in Roanoke today.

  3. That playground thing is part of the reason I dress my kids matchy matchy. The other part of the reason is that I'm a dork.

    Can't wait to see you on Sew It To Me!

  4. Genius! I need to remember that because I know when my kids hit the playground they will be wild. Featured??? How fun...I can see why, you're a great sewer!

  5. Those hats are so cute. I love the color. I can crochet up a storm, but knitting seems so hard to me. Maybe I should consider giving it another go as an adult.

  6. I think there is something wrong with me , because I dont think that hat is obnoxious at all....

    But that might explain the years of therapy my daughter has had.

  7. We had the same weather. Thank you Midwest Mother Nature!

  8. That is a great idea.
    I'm in Iowa, so totally understand this insane weather. AUGH!
    Congrats on the feature.

  9. great color, simple is beautiful, love the red hat
