knitting


newborn hat and mittens

The purple dress is being a bit of a headache (the instructions are worded so strangely!), so I turned to knitting to give my brain a little rest. I've had the yarn for a while and I've been thinking about what project would be worthy of the material - it's just so gorgeous! Now I decided that instead of waiting for a special project, I'd just choose a project and make it special with the material. So I don't have a tiny recipient planned for this gift, but I had a good time making it.

yarn: Patagonia Nature Cotton
pattern: hat is from
Stich'n'Bitch, mittens are my own with some inspiration from Adorable Knits for Tots

That set is so cool. I dont know how ot make mittens. I made B's hat when we got there new jackets two years ago and she just loves it. I made it extra big where when I fold it over its almost double layered.
