We're still waiting for Baby Solo, so I occupied myself this morning by making this simple baby hat. My wonderful husband took the baby for a walk while I ran to the fabric store and picked up this soft flannel. I intended to use the pattern from Gifts for Baby (the book I talked about in the last post), but who has time to make a special trip to enlarge a pattern at Kinkos? Anyway, I always put the original in the wrong place when I have to enlarge something and I ended up spending an annoying amount of money on wasted paper. So I just dug out one of Ari's old hats, undid the knot and traced it, careful to allow for the seam. I admit that my hem was a little messy, so I folded it under and hemmed it again instead of having a brim. I don't think Solo will mind.
Don't forget that the Craft Hope project this time is baby hats, booties, and blankets for India. We have until July 25th.
