Rebecca, that looks AWESOME! You do some fine work, girlfriend.

Femmy, the blue footed boobies are my fav's. ROFL

Okay, nix the giraffe hat this week, too much else happening, and I decided I don't like the yarn I'm using. Getting yarn for this projects has been very challenging. It has to look giraffe-like and pretty at the same time (hard enough!), and also be soft enough for a baby and feltable. I'll have to deal with it when I get back!

KellyK, I thought of duplicate stitch; it would be nice in that I wouldn't have to felt it. But it would take SOOOOOO long. This way is very fast, and fun to do.

The concept of this hat is actually even more absurd than it sounds, because the plan (actually, the inspiration), is to use two baby pacifiers sticking up through the hat as the giraffe's horn-thingies. I know, it's totally absurd!...which is why I just have to see if I can pull it off and make it actually cute. (Picture the whole hat, with giraffe ears and all, and maybe you can imagine it being cute.). It's one of those things: either it will be an awe-inspiring hit, or a totally laughable flop. We'll see!

Binkies for horns! What a clever idea! I love it.

That is a very, very cool idea, Amy, with the binkies! You could fashion some type of 'pocket' inside of the hat so that the binkies wouldn't hurt baby, or just knit the binkies in, therefore knitting over them...OR, where u thinking of taking the nipple off & sewing it directly into the hat? I do envision it...and NOW I WANT TO SEE IT...LOL!! BC I know you have nothing else going on

Hey, Amy, (and all). in Knitting Over the Edge there are some patterns for colorwork that look like aninmal prints; I don't recall giraffe (off the top of my head anyway), but they did have lion tiger and leopard, plus a few more, Maybe that would work? Or be inspiration? I'd imagine that you could use one of the spotty looking ones, and just go giraffe colors... and once it's felted who's going to know the difference... it's not like someone will say "hey your 'giraffe' hat looks more like a 'leopard' hat to me, dofus!!"

My friend Trish had her baby today!!!!! I'm going to make a pumpkin hat for him for Halloween; I bought the sotftest baby alpaca/silk blend in a very Halloweeny orange. I got some black too, so I'm going to try to do a pumpkin face (a smiley happy kidish one, not a grotesque killer pumpkin one...not that the baby cares :-) ).

everyone's projects look so good!!!!!

hey there IS giraffe skin in the knitting over the edge! I'm be durrned!

my hat is READY for decreases!!!!!!!!!!!! I love baby hats! I could make 5 or 6 of these suckers!!!!

Problem....
Uhhh, first, I just made this up. but if it doesn't work I retract my earlier statement of making 5 or 6 of them...

I cast on 72 stitches, and I'm doing a K2P1 rib to emulate a pumpkin texture....so I was thinking about the decreases like this: k6 k2tog all around, then k5 k2tog etc,.... but how should I work the ribbing in there? Part of me is saying "screw the rib pattern" but then it won't look pumpkinny......

Hild...I just made a hat, too, and the decreases started on a seed st row...this hat had double decreases....k2tog & then k2tog thru the back of the sts. I wonder if something like that would work for ribbing, too? Paired decreases of some sort?

OH! My hat works for the Oct KAL! Here's my submission.....
