I know I'm not alone when I start a project with great expectations, then find it a bit repetitive, put it aside and only work on it now and again. It isn't even that I didn't like the pattern--I really do. I just got bored. I have knitting ADD. Well, I turned that around this week, and of course, like always, found out how fast things go when you aren't measuring every few inches. That is my roundabout way of saying my chalice baby blanket is done!!
I had a terrible time getting a good picture of it, and I really wanted to do it justice.
Anyway, you get the idea. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Then I started thinking perhaps I should throw a wee hat in with the blanket, so I whipped up this:
The pattern is Spud and Chole's Hello Baby Hat. The yarn I just had in my stash, it is acrylic.
It looks rather small to me, but according to my good friend Google the average newborn head is 14" in circumference. This fits nicely around the small 15" basketball I use as a baby head model, so I think my fears are unfounded. I might make another in a different pattern because I find baby hats to satisfying. Adorable and fast.
