Gabey's OWN Dino Hat!

After using him as my model for my other dino hats and having to fight to get the hat back, I was finally able to sit down and knit his!

He was more interested in getting the camera, unfortunately.

Then, it was the phone.

Now, he has no interest in wearing it. Just ripping it off his head.

But I love it. And I love him. And that's all that matters.

Together in perfect harmony.

Me and chocolate have a love/hate relationship.


And then I step on a scale.


I don't quite care for dark chocolate. I prefer milk chocolate. And white chocolate. And very rarely do I use semi-sweet chocolate chips in cookies.

This is no exception.

These will be gone in a matter of days.

Dino Spikes Knitting Pattern

After making hats for my daughters, I needed to make something equally cute and easy for my son. Being a beginner, it’s easy to be intimidated by many patterns. SO, here’s the very simple dino spike pattern.

*This is for the spikes ONLY. The beanie hat pattern I use can be found below.**Please note, there’s probably someone that already has a tutorial just like this posted somewhere. I’m not trying to take credit for their work. I’m just showing the way I figured out how to do it myself.*

I have a feeling I say this to myself WAY too much in life.

That can't be good.

So many things these days give us cancer, cause obesity, etc. Where's the enjoyment in food anymore?! 


Yeah, okay, maybe not that extreme...but why not enjoy food while you can? I can promise you, you won't be able to taste it when you're dead and gone.

So, while these may not be the healthiest side dish in the world, they're amazingly delicious.

And, come on. Everyone loves apples.

Unless you're weird.
