hopefully.. this means that I am finished w/ my baby gift knitting
At least for awhile. This is the lace baby hat pattern from the book: ONE SKEIN This is for a 'girl to be born' in March- so, I'll send it now. I made it for the baby's first fall/winter- since, no baby born in Oklahoma.. will have a need for a hat during the hot summer. *Yes, if you looked at my baby mitts that I also made this weekend - you might think that this yarn looks a little familiar? (both gifts from the yarn were knitted for different babies) I did use the same yarn for both gifts. I was able to knit both gifts (mitts and this hat) from one 50gram skein of yarn. I had about a yard of yarn left.

Here ya go.. It's hard to take a photo at night in my apartment.. not enough well lit areas.
The first photo shows the most accurate colors..



The second photo shows the stitches better.

Laptop.. it's a very useful book. I have many knitting books and most of them I've never knit anything out of them (which is something I'm going to work on changing) and I do go to this book a lot- when I need to make a gift/etc.

I haven't found any mistakes- that's not to say that there aren't in the patterns- but, the patterns that I've opted to knit have been problem free.

How pretty!
Hey, you never know about the baby thing. Another one may come along when you least expect it, so hang on to that soft baby yarn!
GREAT WORK!
