Premature baby hat

29 09 2007

This hat took me about 2 hours to knit, it was a lovely easy pattern from: http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/2007/07/preemie-hats-for-charity.html
It is knitted in Sublime baby merino, silk & cashmere and is sooo soft. It is knitted for a colleagues sisters baby, Taylor, who was born 6 weeks early at 4lb 9oz.
It is so tiny I thought I would put the coin in to give it some scale 🙂

Here are some before and after felting pictures of my bag that I knitted for the AY bag swap, it was a variation on the B4 bag by Bloomoon Creations and it was a lovely knit. The beads are glass and it has redy/pink buttons and acrylic handles.

Wow I received my bag from my AY Bag swap pal Sonic, it is absolutely beautiful and I am so happy with it. It is knitted in Manos Del Uruguay and the pattern is based on the Stafford bag by Magknits (http://www.magknits.com/June07/patterns/stafford.htm). It is so beautifully made, well done Sonic 🙂

I also got a ball of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a lovely green (to knit some matching Fetchings :)) and some Green & Blacks Ginger Chocolate. What a lovely surprise.

Here is my latest sock project, they are Monkey socks from Knitty.com (Pattern on list at right). They are knitted in Natural Dye Studio Merino/Tencel yarn in Grape. The yarn is fab to work with, it has a shiny finish which just glides over my new Knitpicks DPN’s 🙂
