A Beanie for a Baby



Finished just now


a flower

to go on top of a beanie


for a friend's baby.


This was so much fun to make

and I'm happy to be actually, 

finally, 

giving handmade gifts for babies lately,

now that my life has reached a stage 

where that doesn't feel impossible, 

i.e. now I don't have little children underfoot.


And since there's no babies here,

Baby Born 


can model the beanie.


Brr!  You need to wear more clothes, Baby Born!

(It was zero degrees outside when I got up this morning)

Pattern from the Winter issue of

Family Circle,

with slight modifications

(where I made mistakes)

What gifts do you like to give babies?
