This is my favourite baby hat to make, it is fast and I think really cute. I also used my new-found love of Ravelry to get a pattern for little mitts. Here is the link:
They are from Spud & Chole, and the blog and
free patterns are fabulous. I need more time in the day to knit!
I knit the mitts using magic loop--for the first time. It really is magic, I'm hook on it now. Right this minute I am trying to make a bowl to felt--for my first ever felting. So many firsts lately, I love it. If you haven't tried magic loop before, here is a great tutorial on youtube:
Being a new blogger, I'm still leaning. I took several different pictures trying to get the white on the hat and mitts to show up (it is bright white) without being full of glare, and I had little success. I am still practising with my camera to take good pictures of my crafts, sometimes a hit, often a miss. I actually quite like this picture above because it reflects the gloom we are having outside right now. While we can't compete on the scale of blizzards and cyclones, we had some serious wind and rain last night. I woke up this morning to see this in the garden:
Normally that playhouse is well, right side up, and about 10 feet away from where it is lying. One of our neighbours had a side of their fence blow down, so I count us lucky.
