Nesting for #2: obsessed with baby hats

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!!
