Sometimes living far away from friends is a real bummer. Like when they get married and have a baby and you don't get to be there for either of those huge events! What is a knitter to do but send some yarn-based love their direction. Such is the way with my friend Beth and this hat for her and her husband's new baby Stella. And by "new" I mean I was a little late getting this sent and I think Beth might have been back to work after her maternity leave before this hit their doorstep. Oops!
Beth is a big museum-goer and art lover, so I figured the little (secret!) balcony of the Weisman Art Museum was a fun place to snap some pictures of the hat before sending it off. This little pixie hat was made using the Alfalfa Baby Hat pattern.
I am banking on the hopes that it looks a lot cuter on a baby's head than laying flat. The forehead points and ear flaps are made by strategic increases and decreases and the ties are icords.
I am pretty psyched to have found a pairing of yarns in my stash to make this hat. I ended up liking the look of the two strands held together better than I liked each of them individually. Yarn and project details available here on Ravelry.
As you can see, there wasn't any snow on the ground when I grabbed these shots, so I am hoping the hat made it to Stella before it got too cold in New Jersey.
12.17.14 - UPDATE! That hat has made it to its new owner and she looks pretty darn cute in it. Thanks to Beth for sending the picture!
