Whooty Whooo Hat

Whooty Whooo Hat

And she is finished! I fell asleep last night with the baby only to wake up at midnight to finish this cutie up. I loved feeling this plush yarn as this was the first time using something so fluffy! The white was Pipsqueak, I think made by Bernat. I just LOOOOVE it. I may get more for other things! They grey is two strands together of one acrylic and a fun fur. And the the rest is just some acrylic I have around. I’m not one to usually think about the details of what yarn I use for what since I just have piles of acrylic that I rummage through for random things. I hoard my special stuff like the alpaca, boucle and wools for what I don’t know; I think for the right inspiration to make something with them instead of continuing to hoard. I don’t feel so bad because I’ve heard of some ladies having a stash for years before using it if ever. This was just a fun little project and next I think the mama of this little girl is going to have me make a deer hat with antlers for another daughter. I just love this adorable girl hats since my baby boy hates to wear any thing I make him.

Awards? What! No WAY!

Thanks for the nomination 😀 I love all of your comments and blog! I hope that everyone goes to check out her page also!

Now some fun facts about myself…

Both my parents were Marines. I grew up in a very structured environment but I’m a crafty artistic flowy kind of person.

I’ve lived all over the world however, I have resided in Pennsylvania for the last 17 years. I’ve found home!

I am absolutely in love with purple. I wish my hair were purple. It will be soon.

Speaking of my hair, I’ve donated nearly 3 feet of mine to different programs. (Not all at once lol!)

I didn’t get my driver’s license til I was 25. I never needed until I decided to go to college. I failed the driving part 3 times. 😦

My children and I have blue birthmarks compliments of my asian descent. When my oldest was born, I accused the hospital of bruising my newborn. They set me straight.

I thought my husband stalked me when we first met. I had no idea how he got my phone number until my best friend told me later that it was her attempt of getting us together. That was 10 years ago.

And now I’m off to go post my nominations!
