Conversation per last night:

"Mommy, I need a sleep hat."

"A what?"

"A sleep hat!"

"What's a sleep hat?"

"A hat. For sleep."


"It's triangle. It's long, long, long."

"Ohhhh...a sleep hat (think 19th century style). I don't think you can get those anymore, but maybe we can make one ourselves."


Now. What you need to be aware of, is I do not have knitting skills. Nor do I have sewing skills. My crafty skills remain rooted in scrapbooking and crafts, not functional things. So, we have a problem. I promised Jaysen I would make him a sleep hat. Boy, my mouth gets me in trouble sometimes.

So. I took a knit hat. I found a scarf. I cut the scarf, sewed it around the hat, and created this sort of freakish Frankenstein version of what would hopefully pass off as a sleep hat.

He was not in the least bit amused.

So I am asking any knitters out there...if you are able to make a sleep hat (preferably two!), I would love to buy them! Hopefully my son will start speaking to me again.

In addition, I am so excited to try the new CD from Pickel at My Two Boys!
Thank you so much!

You get an A+ for effort and creativity! Why not get him a Santa hat? You can get them just about any place they sell the red and white Christmas stockings.

The last photo says it all!!

I thought the hat looked pretty cool! Definitely top marks for trying!

OMG the photo of the hat is funny, but his picture is just hilarious!! Sorry no knitting skills here.

Haha! Good thought, but a santa hat wouldn't work. It's gotta be knit, and it's gotta be long.

I'm looking for one that trails down to at least my thighs. Jaysen's would be good between his shoulders and waist.

We're so damn picky.
