Please explain to me how I didn’t know that my mom knew how to knit until after Lexi was born?! This revelation came after I showed her a knit bunny hat that I bought. She looked at it, turned it around in her hands and said, “I can make that.” Twenty-four hours later, she had yarn in hand and was knitting away and Lexi had her first two handmade hats within the week.
Fast forward to last month, the Irishman came across a knit Yoda hat. Knowing Parker’s Star Wars obsession, my mom got right to work. Then this morning, look what arrived in the mail. Matching Yoda hats!
What’s more, she also sent Lexi this Princess Leia hat! You wouldn’t believe the laugh we got when we first put this on her.
Finally (and to make sure that each child received an equal number of hats), she made Parker this seriously cool dinosaur hat.
