26. The Sasha Bonnet

Good morning all!

Playing catchup today. First, I am terribly sorry for the delay in the last few patterns.
Unfortunately a combination of tech issues, and mental healthy issues have prevented me from getting these done. The tech issues compounded the metal ones, and molehills definitely became mountains. Such is the nature of anxiety, and it's something I've had to learn to roll with.

Still, here we are, a few days late but here anyway! The Sasha bonnet, is a lovely little bonnet to fit a bub of 18 weeks gestation. I used Peter Pan 4ply for this and it is so incredibly soft! If you haven't tried Peter Pan yarn yet, you should, it's soft and spongy and everything I like in a baby yarn!
