WhatIWore: On Sunday I felt well enough to get up and out of the house and my family had such a beautiful morning together picking apples! We drove north to Anderson Orchards, which I highly recommend if you’re in central Indiana (it’s just west of Mooresville). See our pics from apple picking last year here.
The Quirk family likes to get out the door as early as possible, so from the time we wake up to getting in the car - it’s just about 20 minutes. (This is also kind of necessary if you want to eat breakfast out because the crowds start showing up around 9 or 9:30 and then you’re waiting foorrrreeeevvveeeerrrr for your pancakes!) Adam usually gets Felix ready to go while I throw on my clothes and off we go! I’ve been waiting for the right chilly morning to break out my new brown boots (so comfortable!) and I just finished this hat! I’ve been dragging my feet on hat making, primarily because my supplies and workstation are upstairs and it’s just easier to knit or do handwork in the living/playroom with Felix downstairs. Adam insisted on some daddy-son time Saturday morning (and by insisted I mean, he knew mommy wanted to have some time to get creative on her own) so that’s when I finished this beauty. I really love it!
When: September 20, 2015
Where: Breakfast at the Village Deli and Apple Picking at Anderson Orchards
This round crown, floppy brim hat is made of rabbit hair velour and woven leather banding. Inside it has a petersham band that was handsewn in. I normally put wiring into the brims, but this design worked nicely left alone. I hope to list this style in my etsy store soon as a custom order if you’re interested!
