A hat

I know that anything I make right now it completely trumped by what Kristen made.


And what Kristen made is remarkably adorable and I'm totally in love with her even if I've never met her and I'm horribly jealous of Patti right now. And if more pictures of this sweet little girl were to be sent to me, I wouldn't complain one bit.

Can I just take a moment to say how strange it is to see another baby in our carseat? I can't quite explain it, but it's STRANGE. Because Z was NEVER that small. Even if he was the exact same size as Caroline when he was born. Ahem.

But I'll post my meager little creation anyway. I made a hat for another baby that was born recently, Ella, who is the daughter of Rob's biological brother. Ella (and her parents) live in New Hampshire, so I thought she'd probably need something to keep her ears warm.

I tried to get a modeled shot, but, well, you can see that the model was being temperamental.


So here's a still.


It's Knitty.com's Toasty Topper, in Berocco's Ultra Alpaca. I've made this before and it's just a great hat. Zack's still fits him from last year, it stays on, it's not too itchy. And the best part? Only one end to weave in. Woo hoo!

I have to try one of those hats. They seem like the perfect solution to so many problems.

Thanks for the pattern, Erica. I am going to get going on a sweater with the hopes It may be finished in time for Christmas for a little boy I know.

ok, catching up on my blogging -- I'm a good bit behind! I love the hat -- adorable! and such a cute color. The name Ella is pretty darn cute too!

More pictures of Caroline coming your way -- I'm working much harder to take more pictures as I woke up today and realized my little girl looked pretty different than the day before. Is that possible?

Maybe I'll bust out some knitting as a way to stay awake during the nighttime feedings? there's only so many back episodes of tv shows I can watch on my iphone!

The hat is a little more purple and a little less burgundy than the pictures suggest.

Glad you got the pattern, Patti! You shouldn't have any problem getting that finished for Christmas.

Can't wait for more pics! Definitely take lots--they totally change overnight!

And why in the world are you trying to stay awake during nighttime feedings?????
