I used the pattern for the Baby Berry Hat to make this color blocked hat for a neighbors new baby boy. I knit the infant size, but it seems a touch big for an infant. It’s stretchy and he’ll grow, so I’m sure it will be useful maybe later on in the year! I hope to make the hat in it’s fruit/veggie form at some point as well, because seriously. It’s cute.
All this knitting has me thinking about how we handle our clothing in America. It takes a long time to complete a handmade item, but I love the process and the outcome. And then I read this article on Colette Pattern’s blog and it got me thinking even more (and then it was followed by this blog entry which got me thinking even more). And it’s all been sitting in my brain, turning over and over, trying to find a place to land.
Last year I made a commitment to only buy resale clothing, and I did pretty well, with one little Mod Cloth slip, mid-year (yeah, didn’t really mention that on the blog, oops). Let me tell you, it felt good to unsubscribe from all the e-newsletters, snail mail catalogues… All the things that taunt you with ‘new’ and ‘glittery’ things. This year it doesn’t feel like a stretch to continue only shopping resale, but I almost want to try to take it a step further… The resale place I have been shopping has a lot of the ‘disposable fashion’ type brands. You wear the stuff for a season, seams fall apart, colors fade, trends pass and you give it to Goodwill; not exactly sustainable. I would love to hunt out pieces that are higher quality – with attention to detail, quality fabrics and less about trends. Now, I’m not really sure what that means in full, especially in the life of a busy mom. I think it’s going to take some exploration and time (especially since, well, I won’t be buying anything for some time since there is no spending money available) but I’m going to give it a try.
