FO: "hearts" preemie blanket and roll brim hat
Okay so tab's blanket is so awesome that I almost didn't post this but here's two items I did for the compassionate KAL...the egg is a great idea to put the hat on...I didn't take a photo that way but for reference, my hat is about the same size as the one she made. My blanket is 15x15 and made from cotton tots.

btw: the hat way my first ever dpn experience--I used size 3 and Lion Brand's babysoft yarn. I didn't do the decreases correctly but it all worked out in the end...

Those look wonderful! I just learned to use DPNs also. (So challenging, but fun!)

You did such a good job! Both are so precious and I can't believe that was your first ever time with DPN's! You are a natural! Thanks so much for knitting these for the Compassionate Knitting Project!
