Perfect Winter Hats

Have I really not posted here since last December? Almost a year ago! Well, it’s been a whirlwind of a year! Hoping to hang out here on the blog more often in 2015! : ) But before 2014 slips away completely…. I want to share these awesome beanies that my sister has made.

I believe it was the pumpkin-chocolate-chip bread, to be specific. I’d heard the name before because there are a few stores here in St. Louis, I just had never been in one or tasted their wares.

So I made a point to check out our local stores, I think we have three all together. The Kirkwood store is about 15 minutes from where I work so that’s the one I frequent most often.
