Made in America

Happy Fourth of July! I've been celebrating our national holiday by knitting patriotic preemie hats in red, white and blue.


Normally I think of hats like this only for July, but with the Summer Olympics and the presidential election coming up, I think patriotic colors will be in fashion for the rest of the year.

Later when I have more time, I'll write out the patterns and share them with everyone. Right now, we're off to Louisiana to visit family.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  5. Those are so beautiful! Remember all the red, white and blue clothing back in 1976 and the year or two leading up to it?
