A hat for Lily

Some friends of ours who we haven't seen in years just had their first baby a few months ago. And since Joe will get to see them while he is at training in Virginia…… he asked if I would knit up a hat for him to take to the new sweet babe as a gift.

Why, OF COURSE I will!! 

Virginia has fairly mild winters….. so I decided to try knitting with cotton. I chose some Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Company that I purchased at the Net Loft. It's 80% cotton and 20% wool. Washable and knits up very nicely. They have a huge range of luscious colors available.

So this sweet little raspberry hat was born. Knit up for little Miss Lily. I designed the pattern myself too, which means after I get the next one knitted up following my own directions, I will then be able to share the pattern with all of you here and on ravelry too! Hopefully in baby and child sizes….. yes it's simple, but it's my own šŸ™‚

    I’ve been knitting for 7 months šŸ™‚ My friend Deb Dwyer taught me back in Feb when the kids put on a homeschool play….. we knitted while the kids rehearsed! Those were some fun nights šŸ™‚
