Turns out baby hats are pretty darn quick! Behold, the munchkin’s first handknit-from-mama:
I’m hoping to add a few more things (including babyStripes!) to the handknits-from-mama pile before the munchkin arrives, but at least now I know my baby will be getting at least ONE handknit from me. I’m really tickled with how the yarn created those swirly stripes as I knit – I was a little worried that the stitch count might result in some icky pooling, but instead I got swirls!
I love that little i-cord knot at the top, too!
