Let. It. Go. week 4

"Changing our circumstances rarely changes us.  What transforms our outlook and us is an attitude shift.  It's God's job to determine our circumstances.  It's our job to cooperate with him in the midst of them, adjusting and realigning our attitudes with the truth of Scripture."

I spent years trying to change the circumstances to make me happy.  I had a bad home life growing up, so I got out as soon as I could.  I still wasn't happy.  I was lonely so I started dating early, that didn't make me happy.  My first relationship was rocky, so I got pregnant (not on purpose, but we weren't trying to prevent it either).  That didn't help anything. Changing circumstances won't change us, and I was what needed to change.  I couldn't find happiness because I was looking to the world to make me happy, when only God could fill that hole in my heart.   I had to shift my attitude.

Owl Hat

Okay, I promised you on Saturday that I would share my new hat pattern.  First let me tell you about it.

I have been saving pictures of inspiration pieces for some time now, sticking them in a folder with the thought that I would one day sit down and work out a pattern for it.  That is how this one came about.  The picture was of an adult hat, and to be honest I don't even know where I found the original picture, which is why I am not sharing it.

Well, with all the baby hats I have been making I wanted to design one of my own.  So I flipped through my inspiration album and chose this one.  It should fit a newborn, but can easily be resized to fit just about anyone by adding multiples of 4 stitches.  If you find a problem with the pattern, please let me know as it hasn't been tested.

That being said, here is the hat:

and here is the pattern:
