The Cutest Baby Hats

.... even if I do say so myself!

My friend Rachel is due with her second baby girl today.  I am sending her positive labour vibes and hopefully her bundle of joy will arrive very soon so the family can meet her!  Not only that, but Rachel is having to inject herself every day and will do for 6 weeks post birth due to a rare blood condition that Rachel has.  I know that this bundle of joy had been extremely longed for! 
Anyway, I've been busy making some hats for her (oh I look forward to knowing her name!) Both made from cotton yarn. One is a cool summer hat and the other a diddy bonnet with a flower accessory.

It was a sunny Sunday

So, I managed to finish the shawl off, I cant show it, I must resist showing the whole thing as it is what is called a CAL (crochet a long) and this one is done in the stages, basically the pattern is given in the stages !  Don't want to give the game away do I! I can show instead a daily I made last Monday whilst Molly was off poorly..  I saw a pin on Pinterest which was a Russian pattern in the form of a diagram, so I bit the bullet and attempted it!  All in all it took my  @  around 2 hours, I might be making some diddy coasters similar!

So, yesterday it was gorgeous!  The girls were out playing, I bought some plants last week, Rob planted them for me and started tidying up the garden.  SPRING HAS SPRUNG! I'm excited!
