One of my co-workers just had a baby. While she was on maternity leave I made her Ruffled Baby Hat. The pattern says it takes an hour. It took me two and a half, mostly because it took me three tries to do all the stitches of the long tail cast on. But regardless, it came together in a snap and I love the sweet cotton summery feel of it. I meant to bring it in to work but I procrastinated wrapping it.
Then, last week she brought her son in.
I need a boy hat. I found knitchick's Tomato Beanie. Kiddo helped me pick out yarn to make a blueberry hat. Knit happens, but I like it.
