Baby Hat...

Vintage Knits

Despite the warm weather, I am back into knitting again, spurred on by a recent purchase, Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. This book is so lovely to look at & some of the projects actually go up to a size three or four, so I may even be able to knit up something for Willow this Winter.

Newborn Hat

My first knitting project for the new year isn't from the book though, it is a simple little newborn hat. A friend recently had a baby boy & when I saw one lonely ball of gray wool in the discount basket at Sunspun, I knew what I wanted to do with it.

Can't wait to see this little number on a wee babe & for an excuse to knit some more of these.

cute! I did a lot of knitting hats for babies and always return to them when I need a quick satisfying project. Great colour for a boy too

That book looks lovely, I just bought vintage baby knits by kirsten someone and it's lovely too!

Perhaps you should invest in another newborn and then that way you can have 9 months of happy hat knitting, perhaps not worth the short term gain though - hmmm
