I really try to let go of things as soon as I don’t need them anymore. YES I have been burned on numerous occasions, but most of the time it has served my mental health well to let go of clutter and unused items.
But I have a few special items I hold onto, hoping to reuse it at some point. This includes a cute onesie given to me when The Boy was an infant that reads “Daddy’s Co-Pilot” with a helicopter on it (this is a rare find!)

Another is this cozy plaid jacket that also belonged to The Boy when he was about Cubbie’s age. I keep holding onto it and each child uses it in turn. It’s funny what type of silly little things speak to us. ❤️

I’m still deciding if the double plaid was overkill for this photos shoot. 😅

It was important to me to use fuzzy yarn for this hat, because I wanted it to be extra cozy. I initially tried first with faux fur yarn, a #6 bulky, but I ultimately felt the #5 fuzzy worked best.
That being said, a #6 faux fur yarn WILL WORK if you want to give it a try. I would love to see your version!
