I’ve knitted two more hats for two more new babies!
Baby knit the first:
Pattern: Stella Pixie Hat by Kristen Rengren
Yarn: My handspun BFL fingering weight
Needles: US 1
Began: October 1, 2013; Completed: December 1, 2013 (Raveled here.)
Notes: This hat didn’t take nearly as long as it says up there; I finished the hat, then completely zonked out on the neckband as I worked on other things. The pattern is really clever, and I love the finished object. This was knitted with RangerSarah’s wee babe in mind, and it should fit her eventually. I’m the worst at checking gauge for baby knits because I figure it’s better to be too big than too small!
Baby Knit the Second:
Pattern: Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat by Keri McKiernan
Yarn: JoJoLand Melody, one of the oldest yarns in my stash
Needles: US 2
Began: November 13, 2013; Completed: November 20, 2013 (Raveled here.)
Notes: This hat was whipped up quick like a bunny for a co-worker, and I’m glad it went quickly: her little boy entered the world the day after I gave her the hat. I kind of love these dark, sophisticated colors for a winter baby. Just like the first, this hat was super easy.
I think I need to find a new model for baby hats.
