If you would have told me that I would have been trying to recreate this photo in 2018, I would have thought that would be FOREVER in the future.  Yet, looking at this photo, I think it seems like only yesterday we went outside to take it.  Nine years ago and I remember the day perfectly.  My sweet girl was only eleven!

We tried to recreate it this weekend.  We were cold.  And rushed. And I am sure I will remember this day just as clearly.  (I sure hope so!)

I used the yarn from my December Knitcrate.  1 skein makes 1 hat.  A sweet friend over on instagram pointed me in a great direction as to where to order faux pompoms.  This is the 11 mm size.

Pattern:  Chunky Knit Beanie
Yarn:  La Brebis 100% Peruvian Highland Wool by Knitcrate
Needles:  US size 15
