So, as I’m pulling pictures aside as possible images for this post, it occurs to me that I have 43. Yup. Forty-three pictures of one hat on one baby. And that’s just the ones I was considering. You can imagine how many I must have took (I would tell you, but I don’t even know since I was deleting blurry and unflattering ones as I went along). But honestly, it couldn’t be helped. I mean you understand, don’t you? Show me a more darling baby and I will eat that hat.
Oh my goodness, can you see this goofy smile?!? Ssssoooooo, funny. I’ve been joking that she should be Dracula for Halloween. She cut two teeth front and bottom and her two ‘eye teeth’. And so far that’s all, making for one very silly baby grin.
The yarn is called ‘Poems’ by Wisdom Yarns. The colorway is 517. I spotted it on a clearance table and grabbed two skeins with plans for a soaker, but being gifted a few hand-me-down ones, the yarn went towards this hat instead. I am, as of yet, undecided as to what the remaining skein and a quarter will be. This work in progress picture gives a better view of the colors, back when I was focusing on the yarn and not the gorgeous girl wrapped up in it (priorities people).
The pattern comes from the Fall 2008 issue of Living Crafts magazine. I like it a lot. It was quick, easy, and *clearly* adorable (even if Steve does think it looks like a Romulan helmet).
