Cool Afternoons, Warm Baby Heads

Here's a little something to show for my knitting time. I love this cotton yarn so much, and they have so many great colors, and a little hat is so fast and easy to knit up in an afternoon, that my baby just may end up with a little hat to go with almost every outfit. Okay, maybe not that many- but if there weren't several sweaters and other such sundry items on the needles as well, the 101 baby hats just might happen.

Baby hats are so gratifying- For one thing, they're quick and simple. For another thing, they go on babies, and that means they're cute, even when poorly knit! For yet another thing, they don't take much yarn, so they're easy on the budget. This also means that they make great little destashing projects. You can play with stripey color combinations you might not be adventurous enough to try in a big project like a sweater. If the combos just don't work, the regret factor is so much smaller- less yarn wasted, and fewer precious knitting hours gone as well!

And speaking of precious few knitting hours, I have a few to use today (it's Saturday!) and I need them all... and then some... so enough of the blogging... well, even if it's not enough, I need to get up and get moving- out in the fesh air even!

After all, there are patterns to edit and socks to knit.

Happy knitting to all,
ali

You have the sweetest little model. Is that pattern going to be free on your website?! (or maybe you can just share with me...)

Very cute! I like the "stem" on top. I've done that for apple and pumpkin baby hats (in blue sky cotton, bien sur). Thanks for showing how cute it is on a non-theme hat!
