Sweater Hats

One day last week H stayed home with a cold. She disappeared into her room for most of the afternoon listening to a book on tape. She emerged wearing this hat. Sweater hats are a fun and popular craft at our house. Here is a hat E made last winter when we were away at our lake house having a weekend of "sweatering." The buttons on the front of hers make a flower.

I often buy old wool sweaters at the thrift shop and then run them through the laundry on hot. My stash is actually getting a little low (see how tidy and well-kept it is? I dumped it all out of a grocery bag to take the photo).

It has been raided to make gnomes, bags, slippers, and this little doll.

Hello Sarah!

What a darling doll! I've missed reading your blog (I took the summer off from the computer)...I so enjoy your posts. Your children are very lucky; you are creating warm and wonderful childhood memories.
