Darling Little Hats!
My friends Alison and Tom seem to like having their baby's in October. Their daughter Anna was born in October and they are expecting their second baby (a boy) then as well. So seeing as I wanted to knit some cute stuff for new baby Sam I knew I had to make something for little Anna's birthday too. The result was the charming little Tea Cosey Elf Hat from Charmed Knits for Sam, and the adorable Luggy Bonnet from Weekend Knits for Anna. A verson of the Luggy Bonnet was knit up for baby Harry to wear in the first Harry Potter movie but was never used...so you can see there is a sort of a Harry Potter theme going on. Which is fitting considering Alison and Tom just moved to Canterbury, England. I think warm little hats will be perfect there this time of year. Best of all I was able to make the Luggy Bonnet using yarn from my stash! Harah. Now I just have to find something to do with all the rest of it : P
