Le Cloche

Perhaps I should have warned you that after I found that cute cloche pattern, I would become an obsessed woman. Although, if you know me, you should have already guessed it.


Last week I went on the hunt for the perfect brown, cotton yarn.

I almost didn't find it. (Michaels was a bust. I actually found this cotton yarn at Wal-Mart.)


I couldn't wait to get started.


Or finished.


So I finished the hat in almost one sitting.


Minus kids' baths, family scripture reading, family prayers, finishing the dishes, washing the eggs, etc.


And I was so pleased that I made one for her to wear to church.


I'd prefer that it would be pink to match her coat lining, but I could not find a pink I liked enough. For her. Or for me.


But I found (in my stash) a pink for a friend's baby. While I'm not in love with the self-striping yarn, I do like the way this hat, excuse me, cloche, turned out. (I made this one while the men-folk in the house watched the Super Bowl last night.)

These photos of Spenser are ADORABLE Lera. What a gorgeous little girl she is growing up to be. (And not a bad model either!)

I had grand plans of starting and finishing a small knitting project during the game, but I ate something I was allergic to and spent the evening, well, in a bad tummy way. No more green peppers for me! I might have to get that cloche pattern-I know a 6-year-old girl who would love it!

Spencer is quite the little supermodel. I remember when she hated "posing" for your pics!

Cuteness! Can I put an order in for one? ;o)

(p.s. Do you like your expedition? It's on my list when our minivan bites the dust, or when I decide it's too small!)
