I used the Pom-Pom Cap from Shescrafty, which is one of the best patterns. And since I am quite a fan of little Jake I decided he needed not only one, but two new hats. I made one it white that should get him through this winter and another in green that will fit him next year. Of course they have been custom made to match his favorite football team (or the team his parent's claim he is a fan of).
While I was on a roll knitting up some hats for my little nephew, I decided to throw in a couple more for a United Way auction at hubby's office. Every year they have a silent auction to raise money for the owner's favorite charity. Last year hubby graciously donated my wine (I happened to be the highest bidder and won my wine back). In an effort to conserve my wine, and not have to worry about being the highest bidder on it, I offered to knit up some baby hats. This turned out to be a great idea as there were several babies born this summer to hubby's co-workers.
Do you knit or sew for others' (or your own) children? What are your go-to patterns? I am always looking for more ideas as so many people in my life are at the baby stage.
Live in this moment and love life!
