FO: Newborn Hats

Earlier I wrote that one of my goals is to use up some of my stash yarn to knit baby hats. I have slowly been doing this. I decided to go through one skein at a time, finish it up, then start on another skein. I also decided that I will try to use 100% acrylic yarn. I'm hoping to donate these hats to a local hospital's NICU.

Out of the three additional hats I've completed, I have only used one pattern. The hat on the right is the baby pinwheel hat, found on Ravelry. I made a few modifications, but at this time, I cannot find the paper with the modifications listed. (Thanks to chaos and moving!) I used Wool-Ease Oxford grey, leftover from the Baby Sophisticate sweater I knit for my nephew.

The two other hats were knit with Red Heart Super saver grape fizz yarn, leftover from a skirt I knit for my daughter.

What's on your needles? Join me at Ginny's Yarn Along.

  3. The 1888 foundation date is confirmed by Bowden's great grandson, Gregory Houston Bowden, who states that Frank Bowden "began to negotiate with Woodhead and Angois and in December 1888 founded 'TheCycle Company'." The December 1888 foundation date is also confirmed by Nottinghamshire Archives. In recent years, thecompany has cited 1887 as a foundation date but, whilst this pre dates Bowden's involvement, thebrand name was created by Woodhead and Angois and the enterprise can, as demonstrated above, be traced back to 1885.The company established by Bowden in December 1888 was still privately owned with unlimited public liability. In January 1889, it became the first of a series of limited liability companies within its name.
