Two new finished projects

It's finally happened. After starting this project three times, I've finished it. This is my third hat and, of course, my first cable. Isn't it sweet?

Pattern: Cable and seed stitch baby hat by Sundara
Source: Purly Whites
Materials: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in colour #602 (1 ball)
Needles: US 3/3.25 mm dpns
Started: November 16, 2006
Finished: November 22, 2006

Modifications: Only one! In the increase row, I increased after every 17 knit stitches instead of after ever 16 stitched because 17 divides into 102 a heckuva lot better than 16.

Notes: This is such a lovely hat and the baby cashmerino was a pleasure to knit with. However, I found that since the yarn is so soft and smooth, it slipped off of my needles a lot and then I became frustrated. But cables were much easier to do than I thought they would be and I can't wait to try them again. I knit this hat because it seems as though everyone I know is having babies. This little gem will go to the first one who pops out a little baby girl.

I also finished this secret project a few weeks ago. Since the person who will receive this as a Christmas present may or may not read this blog, I decided to take a photo that doesn't reveal what it is . . . so just admire the blanket stitch and neat material.

  1. That little hat is adorable!! Well done!

    And I do love the Christmas card (maybe?) pictures. They would definitely make the recipients wonder. LOL
