Sweet little hat....

I made this for a baby shower recently. The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It was easy and fun to knit- but there is an error in the pattern that isn't corrected on the errata page. Following the given instructions doesn't leave enough openings to thread the tie properly. This time, (as I was running out of time and wanted it to be washed and ready to wear) I simply overlooked the defect and tied the hat. Next time I make it, I will add another eyelet. The yarn is Mission Falls cotton- from the stash.


I also made this....



I have started to crochet little items (read....current obsession). It seems so freeing to be able to create simple sweet designs with only a hook. The baby's name will be Sofia and the shower was the day before Easter.

adorable! I have that book and have made several things out of it - but not the hat. Too cute :)

That little pink thing for Sofia is sooo cute! Love the small things obsession! Maybe you make kittie gauntlets?! Or just toelettes?! Sholettes!!
