Little acorn hat

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2010

My girlfriend just had her second baby.  For her little girl I made this little upside down flower hat and she wore it for almost two years.  So now that she has her little boy and since he was born in November I needed to come up with something for him.  So here is a little acorn hat (hopefully it looks like a little acorn)

I used Bernat bamboo for the light brown portion and some organic cotton I had lying around for the top of the acorn.  I made some quick little mitts for him as well using the bamboo.  They are so soft and cozy and I hope they get a lot of use.

I also made up these little "cookies" the other day.  There isn't that much sugar but my kids LOVED them.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies
Mix:  1 1/2 cups wheat flour::3/4 cup rolled oats::1/2 teaspoon baking powder::1/2 teaspoon baking soda::1/2 teaspoon salt::1/2 teaspoon nutmeg:: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon::1/2 cup raw sugar
In a separate bowl mix:  1 teaspoon canola oil::1/3 cup soy milk::1/2 cup pumpkin puree:: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract::
Mix wet and dry and add 1/3 chocolate chips.  Mound onto baking sheet with small ice cream scoop and bake for 12 minutes, turning once halfway.  Delicious!!  Have a lovely Wednesday.  We are going to go outside and enjoy one last day of decent weather before a snowstorm blows in this weekend.

I wasn't following you when you made the upside down flower hat which is, by the way, SO CUTE! And the acorn had is a really nice idea as well. I wonder if you created the pattern yourself or if you found it somewhere.

The Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies, well if the title isn't a mouthful ??! :) They sound and look mouth wateringly delicious !
