New Favorite

Thanks for all the compliments on the shawl. I've been caught wearing it around the house...in the air conditioning of course. You know how it is. I had to try it out a little.

You are probably getting tired of seeing all the baby hats I'm knitting, but I wanted to show you this one I knit yesterday. It was designed by Libby for The Preemie Project. I know you are going to like this Mock Rib and Eyelet Preemie Hat as much as I do. The free pattern is well written and easy to memorize. The results are so pretty and detailed that you might think it is complicated to knit. It is not. So, if you are thinking of knitting a hat for charity, try this one. I like that it is knit in the round. Also, that the instructions are written for three preemie sizes (S,M,L). I used Bernat Softee Baby to make mine, but any soft yarn would work. This hat is now at the top of my favorite list!

    And ohmigod that shawl. Fabulous.

  4. I love the little hat! So did you knit it in the round on two circulars? (grin) I love your blog, it's so fresh and clean. I'm planning on changing mine soon, and your is inspiring...
