A meandering blog with no clear topic. You will find me talking about knitting, building, kids, social and economic issues, Alaska, and lots of other stuff.

Christina's baby hat
One of my friends is having a baby sometime in the next couple weeks, and I made this hat for her baby. It is a wool and cotton blend, so it is both soft and warm. It knit up quickly and fairly easily. The only problem I had with it is that I cast on around midnight, and knit for a while, and then realized the next morning that I had done it completely wrong, LOL, and had to frog it back to the initial ribbing. But I got it done in one day, and it was a fun little project. I hope Christina likes it.
The pattern is available online for free, and can be seen here: http://heyjulie.wordpress.com/2006/08/18/cabled-baby-hats/
