I was traveling this past weekend. I married into a family with longevity, so we attended a 100th birthday party! The party was 5 hours away, so I had time to knit (when not looking for Moose).
I started one baby hat, but the pattern wasn't working with the self-striping sock yarn. I ripped it out and tried another pattern. I was having a hard time figuring out the twisted band on this one, so I pulled it out 3 times as well. So, really, I had no knitting to show, when I got home on Sunday.
However, I went on YouTube after I got home and, of course, someone had made a video of the band I was attempting. What did we do before YouTube?
Monday, I recovered from my travels and spent the day knitting.
Slightly Twisted Baby Hat .
I added an I-cord to the top because it just looks so darn cute on a newborn hat.
Since the baby I knit it for is not here yet, I asked for a volunteer to model it. No, I don't have a cat just now, so I had to use this guy.
I think the hat looks quite nice with his sweater. I didn't make the sweater, it came with the bear.
Next up: Matching socks!
