Quick & Easy

I was inspired to knit up something quick for my new nephew. I recently bought the Itty Bitty Hats book by Susan B. Anderson. There are so many cute patterns in this book. I'm going to have fun making many of them for the little people in my life. I started with the Simple Baby Cap 1:

The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in color 300501. I used size 5 dpns, which is smaller than the recommended size for the pattern & yarn, but I wanted the hat to be on the smaller size so that it will fit him right now. This was a super quick project. Started May 16th - finished May 19th. Done in two sittings. Now I hope it fits!

Have you heard about Raverly? It's going to be an online knit & crochet community where you can organize and share your projects with others. Pretty cool. It isn't up and running yet for the public. They're testing the system to work out any kinks. But you can put your name on the waiting list. They're slowly adding people to the system. Another way to meet fellow yarn addicts around the world!
