Every now and then I go on a knitting jag. Might be afghan squares for Knit-A-Square, or too many cotton dishcloths, or baby hats.
It’s baby hats this time.
Almost all of these are improvised, but the little sky blue and purple hipster slouch is Doodie from Woolly Wormhead’s excellent and adorable Wee Woolly Toppers book.
I’ve been needing to knit, but also needing no pressure to knit something that had to fit a particular person or have much in the way of failure points. Baby hats for our La Leche League charity sale is about as low pressure as I can think of. Baby hats are also fantastic for using up scraps and being freakishly, satisfyingly adorable.
