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......................
