Knit Newborn Hat

The nesting urge is real. Lately it’s got me replacing dead light bulbs around the apartment, putting up Halloween decorations, and knitting. Here’s the hat I made on Wednesday.

I used light weight acrylic yarn and size 2 (I think) double-point needles. I made up the pattern with the help of these handy sizing measurements from Bev’s Country Cottage website.

It was very satisfying to finish a knitting project in one afternoon. I can’t wait to put this on a tiny little head!

Happy Yarning.

(Still) in Progress: Green Twill Blanket

Remember that green blanket I was knitting back in June? Well, it’s almost finished. I took some long breaks from it to sew Medieval garb, but now I’m back on the knitting horse (nesting might have something to do with this).

As soon as I finish the big green square, I will crochet or knit a thin white border around the edge. I’m inclined to crochet the border, because I know more tricks with crocheting than knitting, but I’ve heard that I’ll have to be careful since the two types of work stretch so differently. Anyone have experience mixing knit and crochet? Any tips you can offer?
