Chunky peas baby hat

I keep getting hat ideas stuck in my head and they are just demanding to be let out! That and Roxy needs a few more hats for winter since it’s starting snowing more and more here …sigh.

This one came out looking like chunky peas..or, in my mother’s opinion, a moldy muffin! :p Ick! But, babies look absolutely adorable in anything, at least I think so.

I’ll add some more pictures tomorrow…as an afterthought I embroidered some circles and x’s onto it as well. Lighting at night is terrible in my house!
