We interrupt the regularly schedule knitting

to bring you a hat. I bought the yarn in the middle of the winter because of the bright yellow color, and just decided that it was time to knit a baby hat for an expectant coworker (5 weeks to go). So progress slowed on the Chevron Scarf and Tofutsies sock while I knit this up:
I started on size 3 dpns, decided that was too loose and switched to size 2 circs, or so I thought. The circular needle was the same size as the dpns, but the hat turned out okay. The needle was a bit too short, but I managed to use a Magic Loop method. The yarn is Sandnesgarn Mandarin Petit; it's machine washable and air dry. I threw it in the washing machine to make sure; it looks exactly the same.

Back to the sock and scarf!

So cute, and I love that bright, cheery yellow. (Especially on a gray day like today!!) And machine washable? Perfect for baby stuff!!

It's cute. I did that recently on a sweater - I "switched" needle sizes for the edging and later realized they were all the same size. Alas. It worked out ok.

Nothing quite like baby things to make you feel like you are making progress. That hat is super cute.
