A Sweater Vacation

Okay, so I have two sweaters on the needles right now, and it is driving me crazy.
I think maybe it is called sweater burnout.

Anna got a new winter coat from Target the other day. I thought she needed a beanie for it.
Red and brown. Perfect.



It is so cute, but I was hoping for more slouch. I think the pattern I followed was just a bit too small for her. Maybe next time more increases, and a few more inches before I start the decreases?
The Details:
Pattern: Child's Play Beret-psst, it's free!
Size: Largest
Yarn: Scraps from my stash, I have no idea what it is really. The red is cotton, and the brown may be some kind of alpaca.
Bribe for photo shoot: New toenail polish. She picked glitter.

Love brown and red together. She's adorable in her hat and coat.

Oh yeah, I've done the nail polish deal plenty of times. It still works. :)

Too cute. We are getting ourselves all kitted out for the colder winter as well.

Love the bribe-I am totally trying it next time I need something ;)

Darling hat! I love making hats because they're so quick and easy - even when you have to rip the whole thing out and start over because it's too slouchy for certain people's tastes.

Adorable coat, hat, and child. And the white pumpkin, well, of course I love that!

Travelers can still enjoy even on a tight budget. Just try to do some research on cheap airfare since most airlines offer lower price. Doing some outdoor activity can also save some penny. Enjoying the scenery is an adventure itself.
