Check out these cuties modeling for my Etsy store, Miss Sabby Knits. I have been knitting since college. I have a whole bin of things I’ve knitted throughout the years. I’ve sold on Etsy years ago, but this time I’m doing it for a hobby. I’ll be adding items as I knit them. I’ve decided that the one thing that everyone loves is a good winter hat. So, I’ve decided to sell “The Winter Hat” with the customizable embellishment. Check it out!
One of my favorite knitting patterns was inspired by a pattern I found for free on Ravelry. Read about it here.
Also, I am not a photographer. HOWEVER… I did take these pictures of my boys with my iphone and I love the way they turned out. Here is what I did if you want to achieve the same look:
- Purchase a chunky knit hat. You can purchase the one my boys are wearing in my Etsy store here.
- set a chair (mine was a white wooden chair) by a window with natural light.
- set kid in chair without the light (sun beams) directly on their face or body.
- say cheese 🙂
- use the “photoshop express” app (adobe PS express)
- filter the photo with “HicontrastBW”
- admire your cuties!
It’s knitting season!
Check out my latest project. Michaels has an awesome 50% off coupon that makes choosing yarn even harder. My next hat is going to be made with Patons 100% wool. Stay tuned!
It is so much fun to metal stamp the aluminum ring! Talk about a cheap and fun project.
Custom/ Personalized Ring
I use the impressart collection to personalize the ring. Really easy! It just takes a few minutes to stamp the letters into the metal and it adds such a great finishing touch. I stamped this first ring (on the baby blue hat) on my coffee table and it created a ripple in the lettering. I now stamp on a piece of granite as my base and the ring sits much more flat (in the black and white photo of my guy).
For my boys, I stamp our last name so things don’t get lost in the preschool lost and found.

The pattern I used was inspired from this one I got free over at Ravelry. It knitted up quick.
