Practice Knit

While waiting for some yarn to arrive in the mail from KnitPicks.com I did a trial run on a newborn hat. DSC_3434-1
I ended up making it a preemie size so I could donate it to Caps for Good. There are some free hat patterns in their PDF, although I didn't use any of them. I used a pattern from a new book I got Easy Baby Knits: Clothes & Accessories for 0-3 Year-olds
Easy Baby Knits: Clothes & Accessories for 0-3 Year-olds.
The pattern was very easy to read/follow. I highly recommend this book. There are several cute items in book I would love to make for the boys. So far I made Owen a hat and I am working on Colin's right now. It is very surprising how much longer a toddler hat takes to work up then a 0-3 month size :) I am hoping to finish it before Colin comes home on Thursday that way he can wear it before next fall.
