a little somethin' for the babes

Blustery weather and slowly changing leaves always give me an itch to knit. An autumn weekend retreat felt like the perfect time to dig out my sadly summer-neglected yarn and needles again. 
I thought that it might be fitting to make something special for Levi and his cousin, Caroline, in honor of them meeting for the first time. I scoured my favorite free knitting pattern sites and finally found an adorable pattern for sun hats that seemed appropriate for both little boys AND little girls.  
Of course, I came up with this whole idea the night before we left for the weekend, but thanks to naps, long car rides, friends' welcoming arms, and a little encouragement, I finished their matching hats just in time!
beautiful cousin Caroline...
and handsome little Levi
