JUST BECAUSE Gift Idea: A Post by Nico Jaye
On days when I don't want to do much or when reading or writing just don't hold much appeal (yes, they exist – shocking, I know!), I plop in front of the TV with a movie and some yarn. Recently I discovered a new (and super easy) pattern, and a couple days later, I had a couple of new hats. Yay!
Here's the new hat that I made for Nico:
And here's the pattern I used to make it:
For my own hat, I used super chunky yarn (Hometown USA by Lion Brand, to be precise) in neon pink.
Homemade gifts are pretty nifty, and they're super budget friendly, too. You can give your homemade gift a professional touch by attaching custom name tags that say "Created by" or "Handmade by," which you can whip up on your computer or order online.
This eBay store has a bajillion stamp designs that you can customize. I've had my eye on this design for a while:
The cold days don't seem to be letting go, so maybe this little hat might help keep one of your loved ones (furry or otherwise) warm and toasty! =)
From Penny: That is the CUTEST THING EVER! I wonder if Lucy and I could wear matching sweaters? Hmmm....
Thanks, Nico, for this great post!
