My older daughter (she's 8) spied some pink mohair blend yarn in my stash and is begging me to make something out of it for her because it's so soft and fuzzy!
Julie--that lacy bonnet is knit flat??? I would've never guessed that!!! I'm really excited about it now--I'll have to track down the book.
I just finished making the ruffled toddler hat at http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8733 but tried knitting it flat and just seamed up the back because I wimped out about using the DPN's. It worked pretty good. The hardest part may be to get my baby to wear it...she doesn't seem to like wearing hats! I'm thinking about what I can do to dress it up a little...the crocheted flower sounded really cute, bjc1050; I may give that a try. Had I been more industrious and less lazy, I could've maybe put some pearl beads on it. That little ruffle on the bottom is just too adorable!
Nanonette, that hat is adorable!!! I may have to try that one too! My little girl will be such a fashion diva!
I know I will eventually try the DPN's...I'll get tired of seaming everything and will just say, "Why not at least try them?", but until I get to that point, I'm a little nervous. I'm going to check out the video, though...thanks for the tip, Julie![/color]
