The Acorn

In a slight fit of nesting frenzy, last week I made the decision that I was going to make my child at least one article that was completely handmade by me and only me. Since I had learned to knit when I was younger I thought 'Perfect! Of COURSE I can knit my child a hat at least!'

Determined as I was, this was the outcome of my first attempt.
Pathetic no? I contemplated sitting this lump of yarn on my newborns head and just pretending it was a hat, but that seemed sad, ya know?

HOWEVER, I persevered, watched some youtube videos that uh...refreshed...my knowledge of knitting, and tried again. And you know what?
Even if it is a little lopsided, I'm rather proud of myself!

In fact, once I mastered the basic idea of this hat, I got on such a roll that I made my nephew one as well, and boy oh boy did he look cute!
I think he looks just like an acorn. A sweet, chubby, blue-eyed acorn.

  5. That is too cute!

    What a great idea, can you imagine decades from now, your baby all grown up. Taking out a hat for his/her own child, and saying Mom made me this, before I was born.....

  8. ADORABLE! I wish I could knit. I mean, I can knit scarves...not very GOOD scarves. But that's it. :-( I'd love to make cute baby hats!

  9. Love your hats! When my children were born, they both were given hand crocheted touques by a volunteer group at our hospital, I still have them and am keeping them to give to my grandchildren if the time ever comes. (which is hopefully far into the future)
