Yarn Along

Yarning along with Ginny from Small Things again this week.

On the Needles: another Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap, knit in Paton's self-striping sock yarn.

The red and tan Sweet Baby Cap I was working on awhile ago ended up being much too big for a newborn head. I was hoping it would be a holiday hat for our little one due around Christmas, but this just means I'll have to find another hat pattern. Rats!

For this new hat, I picked this particular self-striping sock yarn because it had every color under the sun, and since we aren't finding out the sex of this baby I wanted something fairly unisex. I love babies and children in bright primary colors.

From the Library: another Barbara Kingsolver...this time I'm reading Animal Dreams. I finished the Bean Trees last week and enjoyed every word of it, and this one is just as wonderful. That woman can tell a story like nobody's business. It doesn't matter what she's writing about, she'll make it fascinating and you won't be able to look away.

The hat is so bright and pretty! It is going to look great on someone's little head :)

Love those bright colours - you're reminding me again that I want to knit one of those pilot caps.
Congratulations on your exciting new!
