I have a new obsession.
I have been knitting. I made all these hats in the past week. I can't stop making hats. They are not all for me, some are for B. Well, the orange one is for me :) I am not quite done with these hats. I might turn some into animals. I am going to wait until I am super pregnant and just want to sit all day :)
Here is a very loose description on how they are made:
They are made using a size 9 circular knitting needle. I cast on either 52 or 56 stitches, knit for about 5-6 inches and then switch to 4 double pointed needles. That is when I start the decrease and knit the last 2 stitches together on each double pointed needle. When there are 3 stitches left on each needle, I tie it off.
These hats will fit newborn until about 6 months. You just roll up the bottom for a smaller head and then roll down as it gets bigger. For a bigger baby, cast on more stitches and knit for 7 inches before decreasing.
See you on Orange Friday! I finished the nursery and I am going to share some orange every Friday in February to count down to baby!!
