All Tied Up

Ta da!  Here is the mystery purple hat that has been lurking in the background of a few photos from  this week.  I found a great little roll of ribbon at Michael's yesterday ($1.69!).  After about an hour spent fiddling trying to get the bow tied just right, I present the final hat (which is definitely in the running as my absolute favourite)!

I love polka dots.  And purple!

The pattern is not my own.  It is from Tracy Faulkenberry's CroCreations blog, which is one of my new favourites this week.  It's supposed to fit a 3-year-old, so here's hoping it fits the recipient.

A bow close-up.  Still not sure if I tied this right.

Brilliant: a round with front post triple crochets leaves a large enough gap to slip ribbon through.
...and that "caps off" my beanie bonanza.  Now, to celebrate with a few link parties:  Fibers on FridayHappy Go Lucky and Fiber Arts Friday.

The photo below is just something I'm playing around with to help me give credit where it's due on Pinterest.  Thanks for indulging me. ;)


  1. Such a perfect hat! I added it to my must do list on Pinterest. Would be perfect for my 2 and half year old niece.

  2. This is adorable! What a lucky little girl. That ribbon is perfect.

    I love the name of your blog! That's exactly how I feel all the time. I'm so happy you found me and I'm following back now.

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this hat!! The color is gorgeous and the ribbon is just perfect!

  4. Cute! Great color choice, and the ribbon is a fun touch. Thanks for sharing at shine on fridays.

  5. That ribbon is great ... and love post stitches!

    Besides, I just had to visit this blog - what a great name. Who wants to be Martha with an axed show and cancelled product lines? Indeed. :)

  6. The hat looks great. I love the idea of adding ribbon, it looks beautiful.

  7. The ribbon made the hat! It's so cute and I admire you taking the time to make the final product picture perfect.

  8. The hat is adorable. I could spend hours trying to get the ribbon tied right and still not get it. I really need to get better photos and get more of my items on Pininterst. Good call with that. Thank you for joining in on Fiber Arts Friday. Looking forward to reading your blog.

  9. The stitch is so pretty. I really like the ridges on the hat. Very cute!


  10. I just joined your site and LOVE this hat! I love the ribbon through it! Can't wait to try it myself :) Thanks for the great idea!

  11. So the ribbon was a big hit! Thanks for all the feedback.

    I recently read this article about Pinterest and blogging, in case anyone is interested:

  12. Super hat!! answer to your question about tying the bow: I think you should attempt to have the dots showing at the center of the bow, too, if that's possible. Otherwise, it is perfection, indeed!
