Eat your veggies!

I’ve been promising you pictures of baby veggie hats for a while. Finally took some for you today.

Aren’t they cute? I love the tops the best.

But I got bored knitting with thin cotton for many rows, so I am taking a break. Cast on a Charleston hat and am planning on casting on a Reyna with some fiber frolic yarn. (All for sale so no guilt.) And getting some pretty wool ready to spin.

Life is good.

    1. thanks! They were fun to do, but I am ready to move on. Of course, if they sell well, I will be making them all summer long. πŸ™‚

  1. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!! I’d buy these in a heartbeat. I love the colours, the material, the stalks … everything. Just every single thing. They are such great quality. Aww Salpal … they’ll definitely sell. (Oh, and don’t price them too low. These are worthy of a decent price!)

    I’m so envious of your amazing talent, and I love you for it. ~ Cobs. x

    1. thank you! Pricing is a challenge. I did a brief survey the other day among a bunch of grandmothers in the family. One said “I don’t think anyone will buy them, who puts hats on babies in summer?” I ignored her. Another said $10, but the rest put the price in the $20 range which is where I would like to go, that is about three-four times the value of the yarn, so a bit for my time.

      I am envious of your talent as well, so I think we are pretty equally talented, just in different ways.

    1. thanks, I hope so too, even though they are getting boring to make, lol. I think I need to make a whole pack of them, right up to the tops, then do all the cute tops at once as a reward.

A Note From Abroad

β€œTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
