Rosy Heart Hat for Eliza

Back sometime ago, 
I think in February,
I crocheted this 
to put on a hat.
You may remember me showing it in a previous post
along with the beginning of the hat.
The free pattern for the knitted hat can be found
Life got busy and the whole project found its way 
to the bottom of my work basket.
Yesterday it surfaced looking like the last picture 
and I decided it was TIME to FINISH IT!
The hat is an I Love You Gift for Eliza
who lives across the street from me.
Little Miss Eliza was born the day before my birthday.
This June she will turn 3 and I will turn 50.
We have been joined at the heart since the moment 
we met when she was only 2 days old.
On the day Eliza celebrated her second birthday
this is what I saw when I looked out my front window.
Who could not fall in love with such sweetness?!
She almost never actually walks.
Instead she ...
And oftentimes she's doing it all in a pink tutu :-)


  1. Ahh! How sweet! The bubbles in her picture just add to the cuteness. Hoping you both have a fantastic celebration. :)

    1. I know! I love all those bubbles! They really helped capture the moment. She got a bubble machine for her birthday.

  2. Love that hat! I'm sure she will love it too:-)

      I got a sweet thank you video from Eliza last night :-)))

  3. What a sweetie! The pink hat seems like it would fit her personality perfectly.

  4. Just love those pictures! Love that hat! what pattern is that! Hope you are doing well my friend.

    1. Denise!!!!
      You have made my day Girl!!!
      I cannot tell you how many times I have tried and tried, including this morning, to get onto your blog and it won't let me!
      It says I am blocked and must be invited!
      I've been trying for months!!!
      The pattern for the hat is actually called "Simple newborn hat with a touch of lace" by Ginny Sheller and if you click on the live link in this post it will take you to it.
      The rosy heart in this post is a live link also.
      It's so darn good to hear from you finally :-)))
      I am doing pretty good ~ I have 2 grand babies on the way!
      Both of my daughters are expecting!
      One in May and one in September.
      How are you?
      Get me back into your blog!

    2. You are too sweet! I do not blog anymore, it was taking too much time. I am on ravelry and instagram. Thank you for the pattern links! I also have another grandbaby on the way, we are thrilled! Much love Neicee. I will keep in touch.

    3. Well now that explains everything!
      Who are you on Ravelry and who are you on Instagram? I am Front Porch Knits on Etsy and on Ravelry and I am DanetteKnits on Instagram.
      When is your
      Grandbaby due? Congrats!!!
      It IS thrilling isn't it!
      Much love back to you!
      So very happy to be in touch with you again :-)))

  5. What a cutie pie! I love the hat you made for her. You should start celebrating that special birthday right away!

    1. Tee Hee!!!
      I think I just might!!!!
      I like the way you think Girl!!!!!
      I will start by telling Hubby I can't possibly cook supper tonight, as I am celebrating a very important birthday :-)

  6. Cute, cute hat Danette! I could use some of Eliza's energy.

    1. Thanks Lynne!
      Me too! Believe me ~ she is full of it all the time!

  7. Little girls are so much fun aren't they!!!! She's adorable!!

  8. Danette, you are the only one who's ever mentioned continental knitting to me. I'd never even heard of it! I went and watched a video on it, and I think that's the way for me. This just might be the thing that gets me going. I plan on trying it within the next week or so. THANK YOU! :)

    1. Hey Girl! I'm heading to your blog right now to discuss this further with you.....

  9. Little Eliza is just the cutest thing ever! What a lucky girl to have such a wonderful birthday buddy (you) as she does.

    1. Isn't she something?!!
      Her personality is unbelievable. I watch her from the window every chance I get. Ever since she's been able to toddle she runs straight up the front of me at a dead run anytime she sees me hollering "Miss Nette" all the way!

  10. Such a pretty hat for a beautiful little girl Danette...your photos are just gorgeous! How lovely too that you will celebrate your birthdays together...x
    Happy Weekend to you!
