Yarn Along: Hats and a Gingerbread Recipe (Holiday Blog Hop #7)



I finally did it. I started a hat. I’m using bulky yarn and a simple pattern. It’s been mere days and I’m almost done, despite being allotted only a handful of knitting minutes the past week or two. It’s a great feeling.

Today is also the next post in the Holiday Blog Hop . Li’l Footprints has a fun and delicious gingerbread cookie recipe that I can’t wait to try. Be sure to stop by and try it out!

I'm a stay-at-home homebirthing, VBACing, breastfeeding mama, advocate and sometimes artist, sometimes web designer. We are located on the East Coast (but long for the West Coast) where we try to live simply, playing with natural toys, eating organic, vegetarian foods and using our imaginations and creativity as much as possible. I knit and I'm in the process of learning to sew so I can make (or at least attempt to make) many of the items we need and use and want to surround us.

  1. I learned how to knit with circular needles this summer, but haven’t done anything yet. Are you following a certain pattern for this hat? I would love any tips and advice as I am a total knitting novice, but I would love to make a hat.
