What I Knit Today

This baby hat is for my very dear friend Marisa, who lives ridiculously far away.  She already has two beautiful little girls, and is now getting ready for her first boy.  I didn’t have any baby blue on hand–but I will be sure to get some.

It  follows the umbilical hat pattern in Stitch n’ Bitch.  I cast on fewer stitches because I was using a bulkier yarn.  Size 7 dpns, Lion Brand Homespun in Montana Sky.

What I'm Knitting Today

These Baby Uggs are for Bentley, the baby of one of my former students.

These are my go-to gift for baby boys. For girls, I tend to knit up Saartje’s Booties. These would look cute in pink or purple, though!

One down, one to go.
The pattern calls for a Berroco Suede, but it is a discontinued yarn. I think they look just as cute with Red Heart solids. Lion Brand Luxe Fur is what I used for trim. The pattern can be found here.
