I caught the Boy yesterday morning trying to squeeze his big melon head into one of his little brother's hats(Thing 1 and Thing 2). I guess he was trying to tell me that he needed a hat. Luckily, we are having an unusually warm day, but tomorrow it's supposed to get colder.
What to do? Whip up a basic beanie hat from the stash. It's Plymouth Encore DK on size 8's, with a few stripes. You can't really see the stripes in this picture, but they are there.
Since the Boy tends to lose things, I made it simple and quick(and inexpensive - no cashmere for the Boy just yet!) so there will be no dramatics from me when it doesn't come home.
