View Full Version : Baby GD in her latest hat

01-14-2008, 01:48 PM
I was able to buy only one skein of this 100% wool yarn online from JoAnn Fabrics. They say it won't felt. It is the palest yellow and oh so soft. I love it, but they say it is being discontinued,:sad:

DD said DGD had outgrown all the hats I have made her so I whipped one up. DD and DGD came to visit us last night and DD brought the hat. It was too big. So I took it apart and made this one with the head to refer to. ;) DH took quite a few pictures.

The baby was three months old on Jan. 2 or 3 (oh, no, I have forgotten already:oops: ) and DD said they weighed her Tuesday and she was up to 9 pounds and 9 ounces at that time.

The little sweater is the Drops design I made for her before she was born. It was made with washable wool, but alas, it was not machine dryable. Uh-oh. She wore it until spit up on with the cuffs rolled up quite a bit. Now it fits. :lol: My DD loves it though and says it is even nicer felted. It is spit resistant,:lol: and very warm.

what kind of yarn is it? i think i have a bunch of it in my stash

The aqua yarn for the sweater is Magic Garden Classic wash and wear baby 4 ply. The yellow I don't know. I did, but I've used it up and thrown away all the information. On the Joann site there were some comments about the yarn. It said it was not billed as a washable wool for some reason, but folks who had bought it to felt had been disappointed because it didn't. Others said it was basically washable but for some reason was not sold that way.

Beautiful baby! You compliment her well with the hat and jacket! She is lucky to have someone like you to knit for her! I just finished a similiar hat, great pattern I found online, love the cable working!
She is wrapped in love!
