Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Owlie Hat {Yarn Along}

24 July 2013

Owlie Hat {Yarn Along}

On Saturday, Charis and I will be going to a baby shower, Lord willing. It's now a habit to knit a baby gift for the newborn to wear. I decided to stash bust and knit the owlie hat. I love it, but part of the reason is I like owls in baby wear/accessories.  I started with less than one skein of yarn and still have enough for another hat, but it's progress. There's no need to hoard.

I bought a fitted crib sheet from Target, since
they had this on their registry. It has animals, including owls,
on it. That's why I decided to knit the owlie hat.
In other news, I was planning to begin Charis' birthday gift today, but I can't find any of the three skeins of yarn I bought for it. I hope I did not leave it in PA, but I don't know where else it could be.

What are you knitting or reading?

  1. Ok, so what I want to know is who is that big girl in the green hat in your previous post?! Charis is adorable. :) Hope you find your yarn...the only thing we can't find after over 3000 miles is my stevia. Blessings, ~Lisa

  2. That is super nice. I need to learn how to knit. I can crochet, albeit rather poorly.

  6. What a thoughtful idea! I don't really know many people with children, but registry's are so great when they make them. Love the hat and since you made it, it's even more special

  7. What a lovely tradition to knit a hat for new babies! And a great stash buster, too. I wish I had some babies to knit for.
    Do you give the owls eyes?
