Something for Baby


The fact that this baby has not ONE knitted item from me has really been bugging me. And I've been working on the loooooongest project ever (otherwise known as the Wave Jumper), but I don't even think I've hit 4" yet. So, last night I put the jumper down and knit a quick hat.

The yarn is Berroco Comfort DK. The pattern is from Claire Montgomerie's book Easy Baby Knits. I've knit a number of these hats for other people - it's my go-to quick knit hat. Plus, this hat will fit nicely under the baby's going home sweater set. (It's actually the same set my brother, me, and the other little ones came home in. My mom made it. However, the bonnet doesn't really keep their heads warm - my brother was born in April and I was born in June.)

I feel better that baby on the way has something knitted. I will feel MUCH better when the Wave Jumper is done.

Also to do this month (besides finishing the jumper, of course) - a hat for charity and a knitted Christmas ornament. (I joined a group on Ravelry that is preparing for next Christmas, and I found a Norwegian Star Ornament that is PERFECT for all the Norwegians in my family!)

Happy Knitting!

I'm going straight to Ravelry to find that ornament group. I've been wanting to start something for Christmas.

The baby jumper will grow. And I'm sure it just seams so small because your tummy is so big. (big in a good way ;0)

Great idea! I just joined too.

Your jumper will be long before you know it. At least that's how those projects are for me - plug away and surprise yourself. Looking good already!

Great hat - what a wonderful addition to your family tradition.
