In which DD knits a baby hat..

This is the hat that DD knit for a dear family friend that is expecting her first child. I had a wonderful post written about it, and deleted it by mistake. Don't blog and talk on the phone at the same time, I guess.
The pattern is the Cap with Rolled Brim from Dale of Norway's Designs for Baby. The yarn is Plymouth's Wildflower DK, a cotton/acrylic that is machine washable, but dry flat.

This was DD's first experience with DPN, and as she didn't know that it was considered difficult, had only a couple of problems. She figured out how to pick up a dropped stitch, and has been introduced to the mind-numbing aspect of plain stockinette stitch in non-variegated yarn.

Our friend will be thrilled that DD made something, so since the baby is due in less than a month, we'll get this in the mail ASAP.

How wonderful! And how nice that she wants to knit so generously for others already!
