i love the purl bee. i want to make everything they showcase on that blog the very second a new project is up. and i want to buy out their entire store. obviously, if i set out to do either of these things, i'd get nothing else done in my life and i wouldn't have any money.
anyway, not long ago the boy was looking over my shoulder when i was salivating over one of their newest projects, soft and sweet baby hats.
and he asked me to make him one. the one with the anchor on it. without the pompom.
i swooned. and then i cast on. i finished.
success! he loves the hat and wears it all the time (anchor on the side) - without, may i add, bribing, begging, or any other form of coercion from me! quite the accomplishment.
be still my beating heart.
