WIP Wednesday

I’ve been busy working on baby hats for the NICU unit this past month.  My girlfriend is going to see her sister next week, so I wanted to have some hats completed for her.

Here are most of the completed hats. I try and make different sizes and some for boys, girls or unisex hats.

DSC_0070The baby bear hats are one of my favorites. The color in the picture above is the actual yarn color, but this picture shows more of what they would look like on the little one’s heads. The yarn is super soft Bernat Pipsqueak. It is machine wash and dry because new mom’s don’t have time to handwash clothes 🙂

 

I made a few with hearts because Valentine’s Day is coming up soon.

And a made a few plain hats and girlie hats. Each one takes less than an hour to make.

It is a great way to put good use to your stash (you know you have bits of yarn left from other projects just crying out to you. There are ones of free patterns on Ravelry and other places on the internet. After you make a few, it is easy to follow the basic shape and create your own patterns.

Next month I will have a bunch of bunny hats ready to sent to the NICU unit for Easter Morning. I have a bag of ears done and a few of the actual hats already.

Project updates:

My sweater is still as it was – sleeveless.

I’ve finished the baby blanket for the gal at work. She chose the colors, I used my go to crochet pattern from Bev’s Country Cottage, Baby Shells. It is quick, easy and always turns out well. Again I went with an acrylic yarn, Knit Picks Brava worsted for easy cleaning.

  2. Cute hates, and I really like that stitch in your baby blanket. I prefer acrylic yarn too, although I have a fondness for woolease yarn. I always try to catch it on sale.
