baby hat knitting


one of my friends has just had her first baby. a perfect excuse for a bit of knitting! but I knew I'd never finish anything as big as a blanket or as complicated as a cardigan, so hats were perfect.  I started with a tomato but as the baby was born in October I thought he might need a halloween outfit,


so then there was a pumpkin,




and because these little hats are impossibly addictive I've already made him a Christmas pudding.

meanwhile both my children are quite relieved I couldn't knit when they were little......................

  3. That Christmas pudding hat is the Ultimate. And this post reminds me (sob!) of the adorable strawberry hat that Big Lad had as a baby. Of course, he had such a ginormous head that it fit him for about ten minutes... xoxo

  12. They are all so adorable! Sweetness personified.
    I inherited a darling hat from my family when my first was born. It had little kitty ears on it and I loved it so...I have no idea what happened to it, which is a small tragedy.
