A hat that's not pink

This ball of wool became a little hat. A nice change from all the pink clothes around here. Not that I have anything against pink - I love to dress the girls in pink, but I would like a change now and then. I went into Target last week and all the baby clothes were pink. Boys got to choose from blue, brown, red, orange and green. Another good reason to sew clothes for them.

I thought things were a little too quiet.

Ha ha - classic photo! I have one of my twins where they pulled the drawers out of a tall dresser and climbed on top of it, step-wise, then cleared everything off the top onto the floor. Very cute hat.

Oh, they're so cute! And I totally get the pink-avoidance. I'm not against pink, just the head-to-toe pink look. Same reason I sew for the bub. :-)
