Hat Tricks

Unfortunately Liz hasn't been too well, laid low by a tummy bug. So Monday and Tuesday I was in London, to help with Rosie, whilst Jon went to work and Liz slept. Rosie and I had great fun - we went on the bus to the library and changed her reading books, and bought groceries in Sainsburys. And I put her in the sling for a walk down the Walworth Road. Even in the fortnight since I last saw her, she had grown so much. She adores bathtime, chuckling, and smiling, and splashing around. 
But I have definitely missed a marketing opportunity. On Monday afternoon, when she was in the sling, I put on one of Jon's fleeces and zipped the pair of us inside. Her head was peeping out, so Liz popped the "Emergency Hat" on her head. [The one I made at Easter
















As I wandered in and out of shops, FOUR different women commented on the pretty baby and asked where I'd got the hat. I wished I had made more, so I could whip one out of my bag and say "£2 and it's yours!"
Liz seems to be recovering well, so I am back in Dorset now.
I have two craft projects on the go at the minute - but cannot say anything about them just yet [neither involves clothes for babies though]

  1. More like "I happen to have one here that you can buy for £5"! Don't undersell yourself!

    1. I am no good at marketing, clearly!

  2. Definitely £5.00. Go forth equipped with hats.
    Lovely that you could step into the breach for Liz, maybe that's why God hasn't sent a job your way yet. You're a Grandma!

    1. You may be right there- I have no paid job, but He is certainly keeping me busy!!

  3. Sorry Liz was under the weather but how nice that you were able to travel to London and lend a hand.

    Is it possible for you to offer the baby hats for sale at your church jumble sale or similar? This would be a win-win all around.

    1. Perhaps I should get some knitted in time for the Christmas Fair

  4. Nice to hear Liz is doing better, and Grandma and granddaughter had a nice outing together.:-) That's an adorable hat! I think I will make one for Ruby Leigh and a couple extra, just in case! :-)

  5. I say ten pounds! Even though you whipped the emergency hat up in record time, it's still a lovely hand knit item that is worth more than 2 pounds. I can' tell you LOVE being a granny! Rosie is BLESSED indeed!

  6. £2 is too little! £5. You can always go down if they wanted to barter!!x
