knotted baby hat

I knit a baby hat. On Sunday morning. Before brunch, no less. I have to go to a spur-of-the-moment-ish baby shower next week and wanted to give something handknit, but it had to be quick. I had planned on spending all my knitting time over these next few weeks working on the Baby Cable Wrap for this other baby I know, but then this baby shower suddenly showed up right out of the clear blue sky! So I found this simple, but cute hat pattern on Ravelry and cranked it out in just about two hours. I used half a skein or so of Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora on size 6 needles in a dark olive green (don't worry, it's a boy bun in the oven) and I'm knitting some booties to match.

I just whipped up a little beanie/bootie set myself! Don't you love how quick (and gratifying) baby knits are? So cute and so much fun! I love that color, too!

Oh no! I hope I didn't give you the baby hat bug! I can't even look at a skein of yarn without immediately knitting about a squillion baby hats out of it (no kidding I've made 7 since Saturday.) I'm sure the people over at Hats of Alex are wondering what the hell else I spend my time doing!

Love this pattern and the colour! May have to follow your lead and try this pattern too!

That turned out really cute! Another fast baby knit is the Baby Bolero out of One Skein. It's one of my favorites!
