Crochet Giraffe Hat

Well good evening friends!  Definitely has been awhile since I have posted anything on my blog.  Work at the law firm has kept me quite busy.  In January I was promoted to Legal Assistant/Receptionist. 

But, in my spare time I started crocheting again for our newest addition to our family.  My son, Travis and his wife, Mercedes just had their first son, Jackson Connor born on February 18th at 7:06pm.  He weighed 7lbs. 8ozs. and was 21 inches long.  Unfortunately, Travis was not able to be there for when Jackson was born.  He is currently deployed in Afghanistan on his 2nd tour.  Mercedes just recently had Jackson’s newborn photos taken by a wonderful photographer, Apple Dapples in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  This photo she took has definitely captured a love for his father.  He is cradled in his daddy’s dress blues uniform.  Not only does this photo represent a tender moment but is priceless and brings tears to your eyes.  So precious!

For one of Jackson’s photos I crocheted this darling giraffe hat.  He looks absolutely adorable!  I am so very proud of this little bundle of joy.

I used Vanna’s Choice Lion Brand yarn – Duckie and Red Heart Soft yarn – Chocolate.

If anyone is interested to have this sweet giraffe hat crocheted for that special baby, please feel free to contact me at kymweb at sbcglobal dot net for prices and details.  I have crocheted other baby hats that I will post by this weekend that are also for sale.

This one definitely tugs at your heart.  We love this little boy to the moon and back.

Sleeping so peacefully.  A gift worth receiving.  The natural moment she captured is so unbelievable.

Absolutely precious!  Love that his little feet is sticking out. Such a blessing!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you stop by again!  Have a wonderful day!
