Happy 2019! I’m attempting to resurrect my little blog after a few years, in the which I 1) gave birth to two (more) babies, 2) moved countless times to 4 separate countries, and 3) finally have access to my entire … Continue reading →
Autumn is undoubtedly my favorite season of the year. I grew up in the Northeast where we were lucky enough to enjoy the changing colors and splendid cooler weather in all its glory. Last year I spent autumn (and winter) … Continue reading →
My dear straggling readers, thank you for bearing with me as I’ve failed to post anything of substance for nearly a year. Maybe more. I used to think that ‘working from home’ with a baby would be a peaceful, mutually … Continue reading →

According to my lovely friends and family on the East Coast of the U.S., it’s officially fall weather. Here in the DR, it’s about 90 degrees and sunny every day. Which is nice and all, but y’know, sometimes it’s just … Continue reading →

Has spring finally sprung for all of you? When I lived in DC, I loved the cherry blossoms, but oh, my allergies would emerge like the Loch Ness Monster and I’d suffer for months on end. Here in Beijing it’s … Continue reading →

Autumn is undoubtedly my favorite season of the year. I grew up in the Northeast where we were lucky enough to enjoy the changing colors and splendid cooler weather in all its glory. Last year I spent autumn (and winter) in the Dominican Republic, which meant every day was a muggy 95+ degrees and burn-worthy sunny. Now, I am not asking for any pity come January/February, but I’ve spent the past few months this year in my home state and it’s just marvelous. Autumn is the best!
I’ve had this pattern in the works for about three years now (story of my life, yes?) and honestly the hardest part for me was getting the pompom and braids on to take final pictures…I even have this hat in four separate colors, just none of them finished. Who knows why the finishing steps are so hard, but I think the yarning world agrees that “weaving in ends”, “sewing on buttons”, and “making and attaching pompoms” are just about everyone’s least favorite things to do.
Enough talk, let’s make some fun hats! I’m proud to say this is my first unisex hat. (I made sure to clear it by my very hairy manly husband before making that statement). It’s available in adult S/M and L/XL sizes. The chunky yarn makes it super warm, the pompom is always optional, but when do you NOT want pompoms on your hats?!
