Babies inspire me to knit and when my nephew was born, my knitting needles began to fly! I found a really easy and cute pattern for an Ear Flap Knitted Cap online, modified it a bit and knitted the hat up in a couple of days. This is Luca, modelling it, though it's still a little big, it will fit just right by January. It'll keep that precious head and ears nice and warm when his mother takes him on her daily walks around their neighborhood.
Both pieces were fun to do because of the color work involved (the right one has fair isle knitting). The yarn for all three hats was a pleasure to work with. It was an ultra soft blend of Merino wool and cashmere .... just right for baby ... :)
Here is my daughter modeling her reversible double knit hat. The pattern can be found here. My daughter didn't want the stripe to be very big so I continued in black. It turned out kinda cute, huh? :)
That's it for knitted projects!
On writing, I've finally found some focus for my work-in-progress and completed two new chapters! I'm currently recovering from surgery I had last Friday so I'm hoping to catch some writing time while I heal. Gotta keep the creative flow going. :)
