I’ve made a new little hat:
It’s a top-down beanie, and I love it. A quick pompom made without cardboard, and some leftover yarn turned out really well. I love the variation of color in the pom:
This heavily-variegated yarn looks like a ton of different colors in one pompom, but is much easier to make.
Both yarns are Wollmeise sock, and the stitch definition is, as always, gorgeous. I should get around to writing up the pattern. By making the hat top down, I was able to control exactly how long the hat was without being afraid of running out of yarn.
I made this hat for a very special recipient… My husband and I are expecting our first baby! He or she is due in April. I’m so happy to share this news with you! We’ve been through a lot together since I started this blog TWO WHOLE YEARS AGO! Hopefully I’ll have more baby knits to show in the future!
