I saw it, years ago, as my ideal of making things around me as beautiful and old-fashioned as the whitest, prettiest vintage linens you could imagine. A house that smelled good, was nicely appointed, and held all of the warmth and welcome of a really happy place. I guess I wanted to be Tasha Tudor years before I had ever heard of her.
The hat is one of a recent set of baby things I've been happily working on. I love the yarn, a cotton and maybe bamboo blend. Baby projects are so nice, as the recipients are adorable and their mothers happy with a new bit of fluff I've created for their heads or toes.
