Another handsome little guy in his crochet cap! We would love to see some of your little ones in our hat pattern, send us a photo and let us know if it is okay to post it. If you don’t have one, you better get your hook moving!
We’re still wild about these hats at Piper’s! It’s been a lot of fun making cute little hats with flowers for all the women and little girls in our lives, but what about our little guys!?! We’ve re-worked the pattern to make it suitable for boys, and my nephews love it! Grady is certain it makes him go faster on his bike, and Daxton can’t wait to show his off at Hat Day (both made with Aslan Trends Glaciar Del Cielo) And of course, Tabitha’s Mom thinks she is absolutely adorable in her hat, made with very soft Bamboo yarn. Unfortunately, their new hats didn’t make them behave for pictures.
I am having so much fun in the world of blogs. There are so many amazingly creative people out there. By visiting their blog, you feel like you are all friends that visit each others homes and share new ideas. I have been going nuts for all of the great aprons out there, as have many of you. I am a terrible cook. But there is something about a fabulous retro apron, I suddenly feel like I could hold my own with June Cleaver! One of our knitting teachers, Shannon, told me about a new apron and a great blog. Montessori by Hand is the blog and we just received the Emmeline Apron patterns in the shop. I have to make one tonight! Well I am off to pick fabrics, maybe some of the new Amy Butler would be perfect. What do you think?
One of our favorite ladies is Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. At spring quilt market last year she gave us a stack of free patterns for a super sweet and simple baby blanket. Well a year later, we finally got around to making it! This is the “I don’t have any time to make anything, but I really want to” baby blankie. Isn’t it cute! Come in the shop and pick up a free pattern.
Jeanette is currently on a crochet marathon. We are working on a collection of crochet patterns of our own design. The idea is to make new patterns, that look truly vintage. This baby afghan is my very favorite. It is so “shabby” with a light brown and soft pink merino yarn that are worked on to both sides at the same time. The reversible pattern that is created is just georgous!
