Shades of Blue

Our church has collected hats to be given to new babies at the local hospital in the past. We’re starting to do that again, so while we were on vacation for a week (24 total hours of driving with three small kids all age 5 and younger—really, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds…)
I crocheted a dozen hats for the donation basket.

When I got home, I added some embellishments. I took scraps of fabric and serged the edges and then sewed them onto the hats.

Some have buttons, some do not.

I didn’t add anything to the striped hats.

But the hats are all various shades of blue. I only took a few colors of yarn along. Guess you can tell I have a pack of boys and think in all things blue (and green).

Crocheting is relaxing. And I did share some of the driving with my husband. But the majority of the trip, I crocheted.

I just love the RV hat. Its sometimes hard to find new boy-theme ideas.
