Do you remember the link to the free Heart-on-a-String hat pattern from the folks at Spud and Chloë? Well, I gave it a try and here it is! I think it turned out really cute. I love the yarn—the colors are delicious and the texture is somehow heavy and springy all at once. It’s the closest a hat can get to being a spongecake.
The kids don’t have school today, so we’re off to the Science Museum after lunch. I love days like this that are a nice balance of getting stuff done in the morning and then having fun in the afternoon. The Science Museum is in the midst of its annual OmniFest so we’re going to head to the giant theater and imagine we’re sweltering on an African safari instead of freezing in the upper midwest.
