Crochet Beanies and Big Bear Trip

Hello Friends!

How was your weekend?

i think we have all done this before-while packing our house we find something we have completely forgotten about? In a brown paper bag i packed a long long time ago i found yarn, a crochet needle and an unfinished beanie. i have only crocheted a few things in my life... a handful of beanies, a blanket for my nephew and maybe a scarf or two. As soon as i found it i knew i wanted to make beanies for the girls. There were only a few rows left to be finished on the un-finished beanie and i hoped it would fit my fiance. it was exciting to know that we were going to big bear that weekend and he could wear it snowboarding.

(the beanie finished..... and yes, i am totally smitten by this man : ))

We stayed in a lovely cabin on the lake. it was peaceful, romantic and rejuvenating

After a day of snowboarding we spent the evenings being cozy

i couldn't remember exactly how to start a beanie so i found this video to help refresh my memory. Before we left on our trip i took the girls to Michaels to pick out what color yarn they wanted for their hat.

i brought one of my daughters beanies with me on our trip for reference. i would check my measurements about every two rows. All i could do was hope they would fit once they were finished.

i'm hoping to take the girls up to the snow before it all melts away. i've got to hurry! The weather here in santa barbara has been rainy so, for now, they'll have to wear them inside.

i'm going to add on these felt flowers for extra cuteness!

Next weekend a flea market is coming close to town! i'll be going here. i Can't wait to share with all of you what great treasures i find.

Have a wonderful week!

until next time,
