:: :: luckiest baby :: ::

maybe i'm biased about the baby. or the hat. but i think that this little baby in here, this little belly friend of mine, is going to be the luckiest baby, and not just because he or she will get to wear this freaking adorable hat.

i got the pattern from one of debbie bliss's books. i already returned it to the library but i'm pretty sure it was this one.

the hat was knit flat and then seamed, which i have mixed feelings about. i hate knitting on double-pointed needles, so it was nice that i didn't have to do that, but the seam is annoying me (especially because i had to reverse the seam for the rolled-up part and that was both annoying and not super slick, as you can see if you look at the somewhat gnarled part there on the roll).

Such a cute hat.

If you don't like DPNs, have you thought about doing the magic loop with a circular needle? That's the only way I knit in the road. DPNs seemed to complicated.
