Sweater is finished and now being blocked. I didn't do a gauge swatch and because I knit loosely it turned out to be approx a size 12 months instead of newborn. Note to self: take the time to do a gauge swatch...ALWAYS! I love the yarn which is so soft and a lovely color.

Here is the latest hat that I just finished this morning. The pattern is called SUPER QUICK BABY BONNET by Dilys Sutherland. I added the I-cord ties. I knit loose so I ended up using a US #3 needle for the the ribbing and a US #5 for the body of the hat. I omited the lacework in the pattern. The yarn is Spud & Chloe Sweater in color Ice Cream. My friend Debby crocheted the wonderful flower for me. I will definitely be ordering more flowers from her. This hat was such fun and so quick to make. It will be my go to pattern for a newborn present!
