At my church this week we are making hats for the babies at the hospital. I put together this really simple pattern. It knits up really quick and I know it will look so sweet on a brand new baby.
This hat is so simple and very cute! Here is the link to the cast on that I used. This hat fits 0-3 months. Happy knitting!
I love that my children are attached to blankets! Especially when they are attached to the blanket their Grandma knit for them! I knew that my little baby would be the same way with her blanket and I thought that it would be fun to have a little take along blankey that matched her full size one so that we could preserve the large one longer! My 3rd child absolutely loves her blanket and it has taken a beating! She brings that thing everywhere and whenever she gets hurt or feels sad, her blanket is always there to cheer her up. Her blanket has held up amazingly well, but I thought it would be nice to have a small blanket for my last baby that we can just grab and go. It wasn’t too much work so if I forget it or lose it, I would be sad, but it would not be as awful as losing her big one.
These make great gifts too. I wish that mine was just a little bigger, mine measures about a 13″ square. Also, I ironed mine after I was finished and it gave it a nice sheen, I don’t normally iron my knitting, but in this case I loved how it turned out. Happy knitting!
This is one of the first project I did. I really wanted to make little leg warmers but I didn’t feel confident in knitting with double pointed needles and honestly I hated knitted with double pointed needles. I finally talked myself up to it and went over to yarn shop to pick some yarn and get the needles I needed. The women there told me not to use double pointed needles but 2 circular needles. They all happened to be making projects at that very moment with 2 circular needles and I loved the idea. It took me a little while to get the feel and the hang of it. I loved it! The leg warmer knit up really quick. The magic loop is even better but I did this pattern with 2 circulars, you could use double pointed or the magic loop.
I was also opened up to the idea of self stripping yarn. Amazing! It was so fun, and so easy the yarn just does all the stripping work by it’s self and I loved how it look!
