After participating in NabloPoMo (a post every day in November) most of you have heard that I am working on NICU hats.
The hospital I give them to usually has around 25 babies in the unit. I want to get them done early so I can get them to the nurses in plenty of time before the holidays.
I decided on snowmen hats. They are working up really fast cute, but I am not happy with the faces. The pattern calls for them to be set at a jaunty angle, but I am just not loving the way they look.
I think they look a little deconstructed.
I am going to sew the faces on straight to see if I like them better. Meanwhile, I used the pattern from day #1 of the NICU challenge it is the Waffle Stitch Strip Beanie pattern by Bonnie Potter at Sunset Crochet.
Here is the pic:
These are the hats that I have finished so far this December, a few have the carrot noses sewn on waiting for eyes and mouths to be added.
