Being an aunty makes me crazy for baby crafting. I've spend an inordinate amount of time looking up patterns -- seriously, I could be knitting until the GreyBaby starts kindergarten.
And yet, when it came down to it, I looked through my stash, found some sock leftovers, grabbed a crochet hook and went for it.
Yes, crochet. It's much faster than knitting -- which is very handy because the entire first few months of a baby's life is one big growth spurt.
This hat I had to re-do a couple of times as the GreyBaby's head was bigger than I'd thought (or grew a lot while I was making it). Good thing I see him at least weekly. We had fun fitting parties (mostly while he was asleep). I finally finished, just in time for his first road trip!
Isn't he just the cutest thing?!
I can hardly believe this was nearly two months ago! Happy to report that the hat still fits, albeit barely, and he turns around so much now that the next one will have to have a strap to fit under those chins.
Oh, and did I mention that since GreyBaby, no less than four births have taken place. With two more in as many months! Just call me Jean, Jean, Crafting Machine!
