First Snow!

The kids were delighted this morning to see the first flakes of the season fall. When my oldest was a toddler, we had a special poem for the first snowfall of the year. I wish I could remember it. It would be better than listening to “It’s snowing, it’s snowing, it’s really really snowing” from Barney sung on repeat a hundred times. As the colder weather arrives, it’s time for me to break out the unfinished hats and scarves from last Spring. Josie is the only one with a complete matching set, so I have some work to do. Her hat is a little big, but I know it will shrink when I wash it and I want to sew in a band of thin fleece on the inside to make it extra snug and warm.

I loved making this pom-pom for the top and I think it’s my favorite part. Wishing you all a great Monday. I’m linking up to Plum and June’s Let’s Get Acquainted Link-Up. After reading her post today, I have a new item on my to sew list… a crochet hook case? Absolutely!
