Snapshot 02, Snow Day

For those of you who live in colder climates, I’m sure a little snow is nothing to get excited about. But where I live, it’s a pretty big deal. For the first winter in years, it has snowed up to almost 8 inches. The people here are even referring to it as a “blizzard”. Grocery stores are void of milk and bread, school has been cancelled for days, most businesses have closed, and we are finally having some winter fun.

This was the baby’s first snow. She didn’t have a whole lot to say about it.

To help cope with the below freezing temperatures we’ve been having, I knitted my girls matching hats.

HATS

Obviously, hats are a MUST-HAVE for cold weather. Especially for those days that it’s so windy, you might as well just forget about fixing your hair. Here are three different hats that I recently made, all knitted with straight needles. One is a beanie style hat, one is more of a slouchy style, and of course…we can’t forget about cold, little baby heads! So lastly, a baby hat.

I really love this hat, and have been wearing it a ton already. It’s warm, it’s comfy, it’s easy, and I love the color. I seem to gravitate towards neutral tones, so most of my wardrobe is less than colorful. This hat provides the perfect pop of color without being too dramatic. And it’s definitely an item I can just throw on and go, which I love.

It’s not really a beanie…it’s not really a beret…it’s really just a slouchy hat. It’s the kind you just wanna hang out in. This one is so comfortable you can’t even tell you have it on, but it still keeps you warm, and it’s cute! Definitely appropriate for the book store, the coffee shop, or even date night. You can dress it up or dress it down…whatever you prefer.

Being a mom, I never forget about the kids. This is my first baby hat, and considering I don’t use patterns for anything, I’m very pleased with how it turned out. I cannot wait to make more of these, especially in some girly colors with lots of pretty, flowery embellishments.
