    I am a sucker for all things handmade.  When I was a little girl, my mom made a lot of my clothing, she made my baby blanket, she also made puppets.  I have such fond memories looking at those things made with love.

    Let me introduce you all to a very sweet mommy, Kailee. 

    We met about three years ago through an online baby site.  Our babies were born in the same time frame, roughly late October-November.  We managed to stay connected through Facebook, which is when I discovered her wonderful talent for knitting.

    “I make all kinds of things…paci clips, hats, wool soakers and longies to blankets, scarves and mittens.  I started knitting in Feb/March of 2009.”

    She has four beautiful babies, and loves going to playgroups, which, let me tell you is quite essential depending on where you live.  Interaction with other moms is close to a cure-all for the ever encroaching insanity of being a mother.

    She has graciously donated a spunky, knit gnome cap.

    She can make them for babies as young as 6 months.  She sent me a couple to try out on my kids and they fit beautifully, even on my 5 year old!  What a sweet gift for the coming winter.  She doesn’t have an etsy shop, or an FB page, but I’m trying to convince her she must get one!  These are too adorable.  My son went on an “adventure” with his cap.  He packed a suitcase and we tromped around in the fields across from our house.

    I can’t resist such sweetness.  I’m always on the hunt for unique items for my children and this fits the bill.  It ties neatly under the chin and doesn’t shift off the head, perfect for the biting cold winds we experience out here in PA.

    In order to win, please just leave a comment below telling me why! If not for you and yours, then enter for a cutie in your life, a niece, nephew, cousin, sibling, grandchild…The winner will be picked at random.

    And if you don’t happen to win, this time around, she sells them for $25 in an assortment of delicious colors.  Please contact me for her information:

    Giveaway ends next Monday, October 10th. *The contest is for the green cap featured in the photos. This particular cap is made from acrylic, she has others made from wool, wash with like colors and dry low or lay flat to dry.*

    Also, if you’re a mommy who is crafty and would like to join my latest *Handmade Goodness Giveaway* feature, please contact me with your info!

    I would love to win because I think it would so cute on my daughter this winter!

    All three of my girls LOVE accessories and handmade is even better. How precious!

    Paxton REFUSES to wear hats, but I would love this as a Christmas gift. Or I could duct tape it to his head…

    Preston would look cute in this! Like Paxton, if he would keep it on! :)

    I have 3 boys, they all like to wear hats…AND green is my 4 year old Maddox’s absolute favorite color, so he would probably claim it as his! ;)
