With the changing of the weather...

With the changing of weather... some things happen. We pull out the flannel sheets for the beds. We begin thinking all over again about how desperately we need a wood heater. We wake to frost on the ground. More and more socks are lost in the laundry and/or at the bottom of the bed. *snicker*
One thing that seems to happen for me, is that the needles come out, and the yarn seems to always be at my side and I begin stitching almost every time I get a free moment. It's almost instinctive. Like second nature. When days are shorter and time indoors are a bit more normal, my extra few minutes here and there are spent rhythmically stitching away.
Two of my latest creations have had to do with wee ones. One who is yet to be born, but due on Christmas eve. I, with high hopes of a Christmas babe, decided to go with a Christmas colored Elf Stocking Cap. These are one of my most favorites so far. I love the long tail and the big pompom on the end. I honestly am thinking of making one for myself. 

The second is a sweet little beanie with interchangeable flowers for a newly 1 year old. I am absolutely tickled about how this one came out. Although, I did have to make a second hat. *wink* 
 It is good to get an idea on what size head the little one has. If I had known how to make these things when my children were little... I am sure that my children would have had to have a toddler size when they were first born. :) My bunch has big heads. haha

So, as the week begins and I have nothing pressing too terribly hard this morning except for getting the kids up and starting lessons. I think I will grab me a cup of coffee and sit down with my yarn and enjoy a few moments of quiet and stitch. 

Have a great week, friends!
