First Finished Objects of 2007

Two Miss Dashwood baby hats from I made these out of the new Cottonease in the Berry color. I used the circular needles, but I switched to a Magic Loop instead of DPNs. Both hats have the button-up earflaps on the inside and seed stitch ties. One skein of the yarn made both hats in the newborn size with a little bit left over. The picot cast-on--the first I've ever done--came out a little differently on each hat, and I'm not entirely sure why. These are for two new granddaughters, one expected next week and one expected in February.

Those are adorable! I'll have to go find the pattern - I have some Cottonease squirreled away somewhere.

I like your ice pictures also. We had to go for inservice today, but it was nice to stay in yesterday.

How precious! Seed stitch ties? I'm off to check that out as I need some ties for a baby kimono I'm knitting. Those look like just the ticket.
