hats

I had a miscarriage the year before I was pregnant with Mikey. I was very upset about it and when I did find myself pregnant again, I was extremely stressed out the first four months -- and longer, if I am truthful.

I love being pregnant. Really. I feel like I fit into my skin.
So being afraid was a new thing to me.

And so I made hats.

 




 


My cousin had recently had a baby and BOTH of my sister's in law were pregnant too! In fact, one of them had a due date 8 weeks before mine and the other one 8 weeks after ~

{You can read all about the journey my brother's family traveled, in the
beautiful blog that Cyndi made 
and even turned into a scrapbook at Our Young Shoot Chloe }

As you can see, I made mostly girl hats. I did make a couple for my nephew Zeppelin, but I forgot to take pictures of them. {g}

I am really not very good at making a certain size. I sort of just guess. There is a way to do it, with yarn weight and hook number, but do I take the time to figure it out? Nope. I just start crocheting.  So I figure that most of them never fit any of them. I did make my cousin a blanket -- well, a blanket and an odd size 'lovey' (a 'lovey' because it sooo didn't turn out how I expected)

I did make Mikey a blanket and hat (that fit him!) that he wore ALL the time until I couldn't roll it up anymore.
He is saying 'touchdown" in his sleep here ~





I made another for my cousin's older daughter (modeled by Kelly)
and one for Mikey
that he never keeps on his head

and another one for Chloe when she came home -- because none of the others I made fit!
Haha

(yes, I DO know how cute she is!!!)


So go figure that I am making a hat now.

For Paige. For her trip. To Olympic Park. For a WEEK. 
(am I starting to stress?)

I am not finished with it. I am making a goofy looking 'flower' for the top.


Paige has always been a hat girl She wears the ones I made that started out as baby hats and ended up fitting her -- all the time.
(at home)

She picked out the yarn.
The colors are pretty.
It's soft and warm.

At least it fits.

Beautiful hats- I know that if I was expecting I would be making a ton of those.

Awwww! I never saw this post! It's weird. A bunch of your posts have seemed to slip by my radar. Not sure how that happened... I'm not sure I knew about your miscarriage, Carol. I guess we didn't talk a lot until FB and that was probably right after it happened. I'm so sorry :-( I recognize a bunch of those hats! :-) I think Chloe actually wore them all at one point. I'm pretty sure I have pictures of her in all of them. Except maybe the one pink one that you send for the twins and I gave to Leila. Seeing the picture of those two hats still turns my stomach. Weird, huh? Anyway, I LOVE your hats! I wish I could make some like that! Lots of love to you, sis!
