It’s my standard bag in bag situation.

A slow grow, but I really love the classic simplicity of this hat, it has a clever trick and a bit of whipstitching to get the perfect hold the fold, triple thick brim.

By all accounts, it appears I like to knit hats that look like ready-made hats.

(I had a hat like this as a kid, it was white with a light purple brim, a huge white and purple pom pom on top and an E.T. patch on the band πŸ’•)

Some days you just need little reminders, honesty, a loaf size bread squishy, too many adorable pens, and a few hours of alone time.

This vintage floral print is giving my newest bag all the 1970s bridesmaid/1980s barbie feels πŸ’•
