I used the pattern Two Needle Baby Hat that is knitted flat and then seamed. I decided to use my new Debbie Mumm Traditions yarn in Chocolate Raspberry. It only took me a few hours to complete and I think it turned out quite nice. It’s been a long time since I have held or seen a baby so mine looks a little large to me, but I hope it will be fine.

I have still been knitting away on some Christmas gifts and I have also been knitting up some dishcloths and one dishtowel.

Very fun to knit and you must use DPN’s. I didn’t think I chose yarns with enough contrast so I made another one below… using Christmas colors.
Here is another Christmas one… still in progress using the Cro-Hook. I love these as they crochet up super fast and have one color on one side and another color on the other. This is stitch #55 in the 101 Double Ended Hook Stitches book.
Here is my dishtowel. Lot’s of fun. This pattern is called The Leftover Dishtowel, so you can use up leftover cotton, but it takes a full skein and I didn’t even make it the correct size. I stopped after 11 pattern rows, turned it vertically and picked up stitches to make the top part. I also crocheted a little button to match. I used the new Sugar and Cream striping yarn.
And last photo…remember me telling you that my first try at the Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag had turned mobius. Well here is the proof. Ugh! and the Karaoke Yarn was so pretty!
