Oh, the joys of Spring! Babies, babies, and more babies to knit for. Baby knits are the most satisfying types of knits – fast, cute and colorful. This little hat is for another old high school friend of mine, Pete, and his wife Stephanie. They are having a little girl in a few weeks, and I couldn’t resist whipping up this little confection of a hat for her.
The stem is knit as part of the hat, and the five petals were knit separately and then attached after. I left the petals slightly loose, so that the ends could curl up a bit like – just like real flowers. There was quite a lot of weaving in to do, but the overall effect was totally worth it.

Lately, my brain is bursting with so many creative ideas that I literally had to write them all down! I have quite a few things to show you, including some super-soft washcloths, a luxurious silk shawl/scarf, a new fingerless glove pattern, a couple of knitting magazine reviews, oh, and Jaime made two new fantastic summer dresses for the girlies. Can’t wait to show you!
