sometimes spring weather can be unpredictable and it’s best to have a bit of fun ready ahead of time in case of a rainy day.  be prepared, i always say.

the girls recently got new waterbottles, which i will post about later, and i thought it fitting to knit a few waterbottle covers.  there was plenty of yarn leftover from that project.  what to do?  goodness knows i couldn’t just sit idly by.  so, i took the rather regal yellow (cadmium malabrigo worsted) and knit a couple crowns.  and then, i fulled or felted them.  adelaide was fairly excited about the crowns, even though she’s not a big fan of wearing things on her head.

the crowns couldn’t be more perfect for indoor imaginative play.  they can be queens and princesses and all manner of other royalty.  Or, they could use them as necklaces, fancy party hats, or even, as you’ll see, rags to wash the windows. humph.

and sometimes you get so excited that you can hardly sit still and then mama gets zero quality photos to share.  oh well.  as always, my notes can be found on my ravelry account.
