Miss Dashwood

Here is the hat I knit for Bethany's new baby girl, Tali. Isn't she precious!! We didn't have a baby to model here in TN, so my sister's fiance, Mikey, got to do the honors. He is quite the character (yes you can talk him into about anything) and fits in my family perfectly. Remember Rob's modeling debut? Yeah we'll keep him too :)

The pattern is Miss Dashwood from Knitty, and the yarn used is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran color 300602. Yummmmm! It only took a day to knit, and it was a pleasure. I opted again for 2 circs instead of DPNs, and I learned how to do a picot cast on. I also chose not to put the buttons on the inside of the hat to pin up the flaps. I thought they might iritate the babies head. Two thumbs up across the board from me. Baby knitting is fun!

PS. Today is my blog's 3rd birthday!! Oh they grow up so fast! Next thing you know she'll have her own domain name.
