Baby hats

Today was very much one of those in which I imagine I’ll get so many crafty things done, and I even broke ground on the Wee Boy’s quilt during a tiny bit of spare time. Then all of a sudden it was 9:30pm when I emerged from the kids ‘ room, having gotten them to sleep at last (and having caught a few zzzzs myself). So a few rows of knitting is all for today.

If this looks a bit familiar, well done! Last week I made a rainbow baby hat among the trio of Magic Coffee Baby Hats that I knitted for some friends who are expecting a baby in May.

Well, my soon-to-be-mom friend was in town the other day, and we got to hang out for a while and do fun, touristy things.

I delivered the hats to my friend and she loved the rainbow one so much she asked for one for herself, which of course, is the best kind of flattery for a knitter!  I was just about out of the dark gray, but luckily I had some light gray Cascade 220 superwash in the stash to come to the rescue.  I think it’ll be cute.  Rainbows are always cute.

But I now have to come up with something to knit for the other mom, pictured above with the tiniest hat. I have a good idea in mind for her…  Something squishy and comfy and bright….

Last fiber goal of 2014

Ah, the project I’m so good at avoiding: carding and spinning about a pound of Cormo locks. Spinning these is my last fiber-related goal of 2014, so I’m giving it one last push. I could feasibly finish carding tonight, then spend 2-3 evenings spinning them up. Wish me luck!

This wee project is tempting me, though. It’s a Magic Coffee baby hat for some friends who are expecting in the Spring. I’ll only see them once before then, so I want to have at least a little something to give them in person.

Back to carding! Good night!
