Itty Bitty Hats

I can't help it... I LOVE to knit for babies! I go into overdrive when a friend gets pregnant! We just heard from some close friends in KC that they are having a baby (no names here just in case! I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone!) I immediately got out Handknits for Kids by Lucinda Guy. I just needed a cute little baby hat for them to look at and imagine the tiny little head that will fit inside. I tried out the Flower Toggle Hat on page 24! Unfortunately, I haven't found a head small enough to model for us, but believe me. It's cute!

I also made a little hat for Baby Amelia from Itty Bitty Hats! I'll get it in the mail in the next few days (once the felted flower is dry.)
Now, back to the sock! Once it's done I've got two projects for myself to choose from... Argosy in Silk Garden Lite #2014 (same color used in the pattern - I didn't plan it that way. It's just what I had in my stash.) Or a sleeveless tank from the Simple pattern book (the simple tank.)

Here's the pigtail hat I mentioned previously. You can't see much of it, but the "pigtail" parts are made with Chinchilla. It's my first attempt at creating my own pattern. I think it's cute and at least I have some "hair" to play with until she has enough of her own!

I was checking out Larissa's blog for info on the TestALongs and saw a picture with a familiar square. It's the second picture, square at the top! It made it there! My first KAL is complete!

Thanks for coming out of hiding! I love your kids!!! They are just adorable. Wish mine were small again, never thought I would say that! But after doing my nursery duty today and rocking a baby to sleep, I sure miss those days.

Now I must bookmark your blog so I can return!
