little acorn hats

"Great oaks from little acorns grow"
It is that time of year, the little acorns seem good and plenty here which means that we are in for a cold winter. Outside my window, there are many squirrels gathering little acorns. Inside, I liken myself to squirrels, gathering too. I illustrate, I knit, I needlepoint, I cook, I clean, I paint and all of it makes me supremely happy. New pens, paints, yarns are the little acorns that can grow into great things. I knit these little hats and big ones too. Most often quip, "When do you find the time?"
Well, my hands are never idle. I am that squirrel you see, always running, doing and making the best use of my time. What sort of little acorns are you gathering?

Leslie-
It is a step, and over time I will learn - adding more.
Thanks for your kind words.

Even on big acorn heads they look great!

Such adorable little hats for adorable little heads. I'm so happy to see your shop up and running. You can now add 'store-keeper' to your list. I love the journals.

With a penchant for squirrels {thank you sorority founders} I adore anything "acorn" I only wish I had some precious little heads to put these adorable creations on!
I'm forever in a "gathering" stage, too!

Too, too cute! Patricia, let me know how much you want for Isabella & Miss Bell's rendering, I am thinking for Christmas.

Oh, that is so cute...I am inspired to give my little beanie hats a bit more of a stem in the future!

Emily said...

SO cute! Unfortunately, I can only knit a scarf so far. This may motivate me to try something new!

I think you need to make adult acorn hats...I like to think of myself as a mighty oak in training, so I'd wear one for sure. ;-) I love it!

I too am busy working on Christmas cards finalizing the design and ready to embelish. Organizing studio to purge somethings and reinvent others.

They are simply adorable! My mom taught me how to knit, but I am not good at casting on. Still a beginner!
