Double Pointed Needles, and Seed Stitch

Well, I finally did it! I knit a hat!! Like a real, in the round hat! :) Mr. Tony was the lucky recipient of this one... Isn't it just the greatest little boy hat?


The flash always makes him blink :)

Pattern: Stripey Stocking Cap
Location: Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson
Yarn: Berroco "comfort"
Time: Started 2/2/09, finished 2/5/09 (!!)


Next on the needles is a hat for my Jenny-loo. This is from the same book, but is the "Marshmallow Bonnet", being made up in Knit Pick's CotLin yarn (I believe) "Desert Turquoise". I'll have to check though. I just started it during nap time today, so I'm hoping it will go quickly too! It's just worked on two needles, so it is a bit faster, since there is a bit less juggling. :)

That hat is just too cute!!! I've yet to make a hat..though I am about to cast on a bonnet:-) I will share that as I get it going!

That bonnet ought to look darling on Miss Jenny.

Lots of love,
Sommer
