After knitting the sweater I finished last week in olive and blue colors "boy" colors (whatever that means), I thought it was safe to knit a pink hat (I'm way superstitious about these things). I used the free, super easy and super cute pattern for this Gnomey Hat from Hello Yarn (Thank you, Hello Yarn--free patterns are cool). Knit with some leftover merino I had from Handpainted Yarn. I can't decide if I'm going to put pom poms on the side or not. (Special thanks to the adorable Guthrie for modeling.)
And since my knitting friends were meeting for some group knit time, I quickly needed to find a new project. Thankfully for my budget, I went no further than my stash to find this yummy espresso colored organic cotton yarn from Peru. I have just enough to make the Child's Placket Neck Pullover in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. A baby can't have too many adorable handknit sweaters, can they?
