another day, another hat

This little child's hat was super quick and the end result is adorable. Double Seed Stitch creates a really nice texture, especially for a hat foundation. This free design, Beloved, is worked in bulky yarn and zooms off the needles. It makes for a sweet gift knit.

I've been putting together a NEW podcast episode so plans to record are in store this week! The holidays are over and I am trying to get back to regularly podcasting; thank you for your patience. I had taken down older episodes on iTunes and they are now back up. The Sampler Girl Podcast on iTunes

The week started quite cold and raw; this morning wasn't as biting but still cold. I love winter weather so I'm prepared however, when the wind kicks up, it can be quite a doozy! 

See you again soon. xx


  1. sweet hat! I love the contrasting pom pom! The weather around us has been weird Tanya!
    Mother Nature gave us a bit of warmer weather today.... she is preparing us for another slam of cold stuff me thinks! Oh, there is a new yarn shop going into the spot where Uniquities used to be. It should open in February. I'm excited. It won't be Uniquities - but it will be a spot to go...that at least feels a bit familiar!
