Newborn Teddy Bear Hat Crochet Pattern

"A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside." - Winnie The Pooh
Earlier today I had no clue what to write about in this blogpost until I read that perfect little quote. As stuffed with fluff as Winnie is, I have to admit he can be quite the philosopher!
Babies can't help but fill our honey pots drop by drop with memories, silly smiles and lots of cuddly bear hugs.

Newborn Frog Hat Crochet Pattern

Since a very early age, I've always had a fascination with frogs. 
As a little girl I'd scour our gardens for any signs of croaking life. These little expeditions always involved a sandwich (The food of brave explorers) and a pair of purple and green binoculars dangling around my neck.
After an endless search of roughly 10 minutes I'd spy a pair of froggy eyes peering out behind a water lily. Suddenly the hunt was on! I'd chase those green little legs across the backyard until finally I had captured my prey!... Only to release the poor little frog once I stared into it's lonely little eyes and realised that this little frog might be missing her mummy...

Nifty Newsboy Hat Crochet Pattern

Imagine the short about Winnie the Pooh and the blustery day. Now, before we go any further, have you got that mental image in your head? Well imagine that every single time you step outside your home you encounter such a windy day. And what's even better is the wonderful (note the sarcasm) affects it can have on naturally curly hair! In my case, this nightmare has become a daily occurrence.

Every year around July/August we get such huge gusts of wind howling around every corner, that it ends up creating quite a magical yet eery sound.
So currently I have a love-hate relationship with our brisk winter days, but I think with this Newsboy hat to keep my curls in place, I might be leaning slightly more towards love!
Do you like blustery days?
