wee hat

When a new baby arrives, I always like to knit some wee thing. I found a ball of essentials merino, in the loveliest colour of pink in my stash. There was just enough to knit into a baby hat. I used the Simply Simone and Simple Simon pattern by Elizabeth A Cote. Its available as free download on Ravelry.
Instead for making loops at the top of the hat, I just knotted the i-cord.

 For someone who tends to use acrylic yarns due to price and choice of colour, the yarn was an absolute delight to work with. So thats one less ball in my stash.  I must not, must not, must not buy anymore yarn.......well one more ball wont do any harm!
At the moment I am working on a mini doll pattern - she measures 6 inches long.

I havent had as much fun in a long time creating and making outfits for her. Here she is as a bride....
Im at the writing up stage at the moment, but hopefully the pattern will soon be for sale on my etsy / folksy shop.
Thats all for now, Ali
