Yarn Along: Apple Hat

I've made this cute little hat while waiting for my mom to pick us up on Saturday morning. Only one skein of red, I was not even sure if I'll have enough for a hat... It doesn't cover her ears, but you know Mariann.. The fact that it is RED and is an APPLE! is enough for her to want to sport it with her RED zipping sweater and her RED rubber boots. Note, that outfit she's wearing is her choice, too.

I was a little upset I couldn't go to my mom's the very first thing in the morning, because Mariann got up on the wrong side of the bed, and so did I... So I had to occupy my mind and my hand, while doing the thing I probably like the least; anxiously wait on someone else. Did I mention I just have a probationary licence?

Well.. thank you Miss Kurcinka. Really.

Intense? Check. Sensitive? Double check. Pereptive? Persistent? Energetic? Yes, I'm all of this. Why I am so surprise Mariann is the very same then!?

I'm not finished with the book, but so far it helped a great deal of how I see my relationship with my daughter. It really bettered my understanding of all the whys I asked myself. I still have the tantrums, sleeping and meal time chapter to read, which I really look forward to. Ah! Today was one of those bad days again, and I sadly feel there's more often of them, as my children not only love but need Papa to be home for meals, but harvest makes it impossible.


  1. What a lovely hat, so very very cute!!!!

    Do you know this book: The highly sensitive child (Elaine N. Aron)? I have two daughters, one of them is very intense and sensitive as well. The book helps you understand your little one even more.

    Love your blog! Just found it at Small Things (yarn along).

    Love, Sacha (maarnietvangrijs)

  2. Hi there,

    Thanks to Anna’s great Practical Magic blog party website I know that you are taking part in the event. I have pondered how to participate and thought it would be neat to post anonymously people’s thoughts and/or secrets regarding the movie. Sites which inspired me are:

    Post Secret
    Walt Disney Confessions

    Those thoughts or secrets could e.g. be “I have already watched the movie 1,000 times,” “I wish I had a sister like Gilly,” “The aunts’ house is my dream house,” “I have dreamt about Jimmy” etc. Anything which comes to your mind when you think of “Practical Magic.”

    If you feel like helping me out, be sure to send me your thought/secret as soon as possible at swappinghowdies@yahoo.de. Of course, I handle each “confession” anonymously. And – please nothing x-rated!

    Greetings from Germany,

  3. the hat is darling! -off to check out the rest of your blog!!

  4. I love your hat. It's gorgeous. Red has become one of my favorite colors on babies and toddlers. :-D
