New product update! When life hands you broken-hot-water-heater lemons, you throw on your new slouchy stretch knit beanie and pull up the big-girl panties and keep movin’ (and call your neighbor up for seven hot showers….)
Cold shower anyone?
Her hands turned purple in a 15 minute ice cold shower – stubborn teen. I opted to wait for the pots to boil and still took my peaceful bath last night – some things I just won’t compromise. As I re-centered my soul in four lovely inches of stove-heated water I pondered how life could be worse – we are so blessed and take things so for granted. Speaking for myself, it’s a shame that something has to go awry before I count my blessings. Note to self: be thankful at all times.
Hats and hot water heaters
When life gets a-going for my family, it’s nice to just unplug, slow-down or take it down a notch. While there’s zero hot water in the house I think about how life may have been “back in the days” (don’t worry, I’m not gonna go all Laura Ingalls on you). Truthfully, I am thinking about how easy it is turning on our hot/cold water and viola! A nice hot singing alphabet minute hand-washing feels magnificent!
Enjoying the simple things in life, (i.e. hot water) was the behind the scene approach to this new hat. A simplistic, be in the moment hat. Did I mention ultra soft?
Handmade is in the details
The handcut genuine leather strip attached to each hat is an extra loving approach adorning each reversible knit slouchy hat. Stealing the phrase “a snappy look” from one of my customers is what I describe this detailed finish on the slouchy beanie. The technique was a multi-tool effort as I dusted off my Japanese hole-punch from my book-binding days and used an old tracing wheel to add indentations on the edges of the leather. Using these tools took me back to a different season of my life, a blessed life then and now.
