The Knitted Hat...

is finished! I am absolutely shocked that it a) actually looks like a hat, b) actually fits James' big melon, and c) actually took me very little time to knit!
So, we had a little photoshoot yesterday. You know those times when you have to snap like 20 shots so you'll hopefully get just ONE good pic? Well I was pleasantly surprised to see several cute pics in the bunch. Well, at least I think they're cute - although, I am a bit biased.

::Click on the collages if you want a closer look and my handiwork
(i.e. the knitting AND the kid)::
An excellent example of the classic "mommy/camera obsession", no?

What does James think of his pretty, warm, basket weaved, homemade with love hat?

Pfffft. A BIG thumbs down. :(

He wore it for about... 3 minutes I'd say and then he politely handed it to me and said, "I don't yike it!" Sigh.

Am I a horrible mother if I MAKE him wear it?! (don't answer that) Fortunately, the hat fits me, too! So it's mine now. No way I'm letting all that work go to waste!!

At least he wore it long enough to get those GREAT pics. He is such a cutie. I''m not sure what happened with my post. i never actually changed my background.

First, James is ADORABLE! Second, your hair is so long and beautiful! You look amazing. Third, the hat looks perfect... I can't believe you JUST started knitting!

My favorite is the nose-picking picture!! :) I am so jealous that you know how to knit a hat! I've always thought it was wicked difficult! Now I'm inspired to give it another go... It looks great!

That hat is very nicely done. Wish I could knit. Oh, well. If my daughter hadn't liked the hat I wouldn't have been able to get any pictures of her in it. You were lucky there. Great that it fits you!

In response to your question on my blog, I do not have any certification or training in Montessori, besides the on the job training I received. When I started there only a couple of people were Montessori trained. I always wanted to get some more official training, but couldn't afford it. How are you getting your training?

I LOVE It! Looks great on both of you :) I totally make my daughter wear things, haha. I tell her she HAS to wear what I say on school days and for church.
I love your blog, and I'm following you now :)

I am SO impressed with your knitting skills! The hat is so cute, on both you and James. What a shame that he doesn't want to wear it, but at least you got some cute photos!

Those pictures of James are ADORABLE... what a cute little guy! I can not believe he doesn't like the hat. Good thing it looks fabulous on you too! ;)

Mari-Ann said...

Hi, I am looking through your old knitting posts because I am finally getting the courage to do something more than a square, ha! Anyway, looking at your pic in this one, are you from Minnesota? That is where I live, small world :) I have been following you for a little over a year and when I decided to do some baby knits I remembered that you had done some cute ones last year. I love your blog! Thank you for sharing with us!
