I have a thing for old-fashioned baby hats, and last weekend as I walked through the farmers market in Greystones I spotted these little gems. There is a very nice lady called Elaine who has a stall where she sells her handknits. And at €5 I just couldn't resist them. She said they were knit up from her mothers pattern which she modified.
It was this blue one that caught my eye as it reminded me so much of this precious keepsake.
And I have a certain tiny new person in mind for this sweet yellow one, (hope you're not reading just yet Tali!)
So, if you are interested and in the Greystones area in the next couple of weeks, Elaine will be giving knitting workshops in the Meridian Centre from 16th May to 6th June, (€5).
