M'Lady's Rosy Cloche

 
I'm sneaking out of the Pumpkin Patch just long enough to show you a few new items I listed yesterday in my Etsy Shop ~ Front Porch Knits. They are my absolute favorite ladies hats in the world! I love the pure luxury of 100% Baby Alpaca. Nothing beats the sumptuous softness. And  crocheted shells always lend that light, lacy air of femininity. Then, of course, the real Ooh~La~La factor for me is the ROSE!  { I have a confession to make ~ I so much prefer ROSES to pumpkins...shhh.... don't tell that to anyone in this town right now... I may get tarred & feathered!}

 

These fit close to the head and give a bit of a vintage~flapper girl look when worn. The rose goes to one side. They are very charming and actually quite warm. Though they are somewhat lacy and airy due to the sheer nature of the crochet, the Alpaca is very insulating. Quite soft and snuggly!
 
For a better peek at them  go to frontporchknits.etsy.com
 
Well, I really must say TTFN {Ta~Ta~For~Now!} and get myself back to the pumpkin patch.
Want a sneak peek of today's pumpkin finery?
 
 
It's patiently waiting for me to grow it into a Pumpkin Pincushion.
More on that in the next day or two!
 
So My Dears ~
Be Healthy ~ Be Happy ~ Be Blessed ~
Until we meet again!

  1. Danette,
    So precious and sweet. Had to escape the drudgery of academic writing... yawn. So much better to craft, sew, watch I Love Lucy...anything.

  2. Your hats are gorgeous, and they must be dreamy soft since you used baby alpaca yarn! They will surely be snapped up quickly.
    Have a great week!
