Maybe its just me, but when I have work to do that I’m not looking forward to then I can always find a million other things to do first. All week I’ve been thinking that I must get prepared for the start of the new school term, and all week I’ve been knitting, cleaning, shopping, painting my nails and just about everything else but school work!
This afternoon on a whim I decided that I had to knit a baby hat right away (My cousin is going to be a dad for the first time, baby due late November) So I logged onto Ravelry, had a quick rummage through my stash and a couple of hours later here is my striped baby hat! The pattern is ‘The Fixie’ which is a free Ravelry download. I used Patons Washed Haze DK in a cream and a natural colour (playing the colours safe as we don’t know if its a boy or girl) It only used about a third of each ball so a very thrifty knit. Its a really simple pattern and I think its quite quirky and cute, the only niggly part is grafting the seams together (which I’m getting better at with practise) I have enough left over for a pair of boots or shoes so that will be next. I love baby knits, so quick and satisfying!
