Anything “Baby Size” Is Cute

I found the most adorable baby hat pattern on Ravelry a few weeks back.  Yet another obsession I can blame on PodMate.  An online community for those who knit and crochet that’s chocked full of all things yarn.

After reading the pattern a few times, I decided I could totally knock the socks off this pattern and went at it.  I learned how to finally M1 without having to do a bar increase.  I worked only on DPNs (I might have also cursed a lot). I  tried my hand at another i-cord. It went well for the most part.

Well, there was those 30 minutes where I didn’t decrease correctly and I had to close my eyes as Martha took out a couple rows.  But other than that, it went well.  And it’s so dang cute.

Baby Tulip Hat

Eat your heart out, people!  It’s a little tulip hat.  And it’s so tiny.  Apparently that happens when you make things in newborn size.  And there’s a new baby coming along in a few weeks and I’m hoping I can get it to the new momma in time.  But I couldn’t wait any more.  I had to share.

J. Smith - I’m just gonna throw out the information that E has a perfect little round head that fits a 6 month hat. Do with that information what you will. Maybe I can trade some ridiculously cute cookies for some knitting lessons?
