January 2015 - 16 baby hats
Baby hats are the perfect speed for me right now. While I'd love to be at the speed I was at before having two kids, making an adult hat every other day or so, the reality is there's just not time for that! Rather than slow up on my knitting goals, baby hats help me keep up with how much I'd like to be donating, while making it seem manageable.
Plus, how cute are newborn hats?!
Most of these hats are made using my Benson Beanie pattern, which is my favorite and go-to baby hat pattern. I've simply been grabbing a skein at a time from my stash and knitting away until I can't make a full hat from whatever's left. And yes, I've been knocking out most of my pink stash - with Valentine's Day coming up, I just kept picturing little baby valentines and couldn't help myself!
These hats are going to the wife of one of Zach's co-workers, who works in labor and delivery at one of our local hospitals. They love to put handmade hats on the newborns, and I know these will be loved and appreciated!
