Bring-me-home hat for baby
In between attending demonstrations and rallies at our state capitol (you can look here and here for why my family, and 60,000 other WI residents, are protesting) I wanted/needed to knit a little something for the baby. This little hospital hat was what I came up with. It also helped me slow down and put my feet up - something that I need to be doing as I enter these last weeks of pregnancy.
During my stash challenge year I knit a lot of baby items: sweaters, blankets, hats, etc. But nothing with this particular little peanut in mind. This the first hat that I made for our newest little one. It is sized to be the hat that we bring s/he home from the hospital in. In fact it is so small, and just the right size, that I bet it will only fit for about a week or so.
It is knit up in Misti Alpaca - an super-soft and cuddly fiber and the hand-painted colors are just gorgeous.
