One More Left

I am now the only member of my household who does not have a hand knit hat.

Project Specs:
Pattern: Top Down Baby Bonnet by Adrian at Hello Yarn
Yarn: Merino 2-ply handspun, leftover from this project
Needles: #3 DPNs
Notes: I never ever make hats for my kids the right size the first time around. Their heads are always so much bigger than I think they are. Both this hat and the one I made for my son earlier this fall (also out of handspun, but never made it to the blog, you can see it here) I had to frog back from the bind off and knit several more inches. You'd think I'd learn, but no.


I have started in on Ariann, and it is the perfect sweater project for me right now - interesting to knit, but does not really require much concentration. It will get its own post later this week hopefully.

What a darling little hat (and hat-wearer)! Given your history with hat making, it sounds as though you're smart to stick with the top-down variety. :)

Oh, my gosh, she is so sweet in that little hat! I don't have a whole lot of luck with hats the first time around either . . . but eventually they work! :)
