    I absolutely LOVE the idea of this hat being a “palette cleanser “! I’ve knit five Beloveds, and will definitely keep this thought in mind when I need to take a breath and reset my knitting rhythm. 😍

    The ‘birth hat’ tradition is absolutely lovely! And I also often do a baby hat for the gift stash when in between other projects! The Beloved bonnets are gorgeous, will add to my list. Cheers, Sally at One Family, One Planet blog

    Those bonnets rock! And I bet handspun is just delicious. I can’t wait to get a drop spindle and try it out and maybe make something from it haha

    One more Beloved hat on such a cute little model. She is the daughter of my daughter’s good friend.

    I love the idea of the race to cast off before baby arrives! The bonnets are too cute.
