Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Second beehive hat

Pattern link on Ravelry
When the other hat turned out to fit Seth, while they were visiting, I asked Zoe and T.J. what color hat they would each like.  T.J. said purple, and knowing that his daddy would not like for T.J. to wear a really PURPLE hat, I decided to make the main portion of T.J.'s hat black, with purple showing in the 'grooves'.  I finished it's been a good carry-along to doctor's visits.
Like I said, the other one was given to Seth, so I no longer need to hide it in the Christmas section !

Zoe asked for pink and red, but I couldn't find two of the same weight that looked good together, so I've purchased hot pink yarn with a bit of glimmer, and black, to make hers.  I'll reverse the color placement on hers, and have pink for the ridges and black for the grooves, LORD willing.

  I started it tonight.  The yarn is a lighter weight, sport, so I've cast on an extra 10 stitches (95) and I went down 2 sizes on my needle, to a size 5.

 T.J.'s was 10 stitches bigger (85) than Seth's (75), but done in the same weight of yarn, worsted, and the same needle, a size 7.  I hope none of these hats come out too big.  I can't just say that Kelley (their mama, my daughter) will wear them if they do, because her head is so tiny that she's able to wear a ball cap that is adjusted for SETH !


  1. these are great hats...i love the hint of color in them

  2. Love those hats, Dolly. I made several of them a few years ago, but I didn't switch colors between the knit and purl sections. It's such a versatile, wearable style--and it's warm on cold days too!


Thanks for stopping by !
