Here is my cutie-pie niece wearing her new hat as she opened her presents on Christmas morning. I love how it just happens to match her pjs; it’s a good color-combination for her age. It reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake Doll I had growing up, with her pink and green striped tights. My sister is working on a garter-stitch scarf in the same exact yarn, so I thought it would be great if she had a hat to match. Cute and sassy – just like Katie. It was nice to send them back to school (woo hoo!) this morning all warm and cozy:Here are the details of Katie’s hat:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to take advantage of my nice, quiet house. I think a morning of knitting in bed with a hot cup of coffee and some Netflix is in order. ~J
