New Hat Week: Day 3

Image hosted by

I chose today's hat, Spiral Preemie Cap, mainly because it looked like it would be quick to knit. It is. The only changes I made to the pattern were to use size US 7 needles and to add a crocheted chain topper similar to the one here. This cute hat will fit a 3-5 lb baby. And just in case you were wondering, the yarn I used is Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, but any worsted weight would do.

I have the next hat already started, but I'm not sure it will get finished today or even posted. I live near Houston and as you have heard, hurricane Rita is heading our way. Today I will try to get things prepared for us to leave. We are not in an evacuation area, but HIGH winds are expected here and we're not interested in staying around to see that. Pray for those in the path of this storm.


  1. Cute hat. But most importantly... keep you and your family safe. Thinking of you... and hoping that Rita turns south and fizzles.

  2. Love all the new baby hats! I just found out 2 weeks ago I am going to be an aunt again, so I'll be using yours for inspiration! You all stay out of the way of that storm now...I'll be praying for your safety.

  3. What a great hat! That's definitely going on my list of things to make. I'll be praying that you and your family are safe, and that Rita calms down.

  4. Take care of yourself! I completely forgot that you were so close to Houston. Be safe and get out of there! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Remember to take your needles with you. It's always good to have a way to get rid of all that nervous energy. I'll be thinking of you!

  5. I love the spiral preemie hat! I don't know where Needville is - - were you affected by the hurricane? Hope all is well......
