With all of the snow and cold we’re getting lately, we need to take some time away from shoveling and shivering and find ways to have fun.

If you know a cute kid who needs a cute hat to keep her warm on the sledding hill, check out these “gnome hats” handmade by Yarmouth artist Lynn Holaday. They are 85 percent wool and 15 percent mohair, and they come in a wide variety of bright, bold color schemes in newborn, toddler and child sizes. If nothing else, the pointy top sticking up through the waist-high snowbanks will keep your child from getting lost in the next storm.

Holaday sells her hats and other items on Etsy and at Circa Home & Vintage and The Merchant Co., both on Congress Street in Portland. She makes most of her sales through local craft shows such as Art on the Hill and Designing Women, though, because she likes seeing customer reactions and getting feedback on her products. Holaday also makes whimsical wool felt collages that she hand stitches on recycled children’s denim clothing – a moose on overalls, a guitar on a denim jacket. The gnome hats are $20-25, depending on size.
