8 baby hats ~ one down, 7 to go....

Received a call from some close friends of ours last night and it seems we have a bit of a baby boom going on in these parts. That makes 8 new and/or soon to arrive babies. So, I am getting busy with the hats!

Pattern: Cotton Stria Stripe hat from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Manos Cotton Stria (various girlie colors)
Needles: Two size 6 circulars
Modifications: Made mine just a bit shorter than the pattern calls for.

Would I make this again? You bet! Super cute, fun and quick. Took all of about 3 hours on and off to make. So cute, I had to add another pic. Next up - a boy version.

I absolutely love this hat! I think you may get me knitting caps for preemies at Spectrum Hospitals. I really like your blog, and will have fun snooping around in it.

So cute!!! I'm sure it's really soft too. I love the colors and the feel of Cotton Striata.
I too have been hearing about a lot of new babies on the way. That's fine with me though, I've seen so many wonderful baby patterns that I've been looking for an excuse to knit!
