Yarn Along 11/29/11 - Baby Cables!

Can I show you my new little cabled baby hat?  I love it and am so excited to see this new little bundle in it!  I so hope it fits!  I finished this the other night and then made some tiny matching mitts.  The mitts took only a little over an hour and then I was able to sit and stare at how cute and little they are...and Brian even gushed a bit, too ;)  The cabled earflap hat is from the pattern here using the 11-cable variation and the yarn is Knitpicks Superwash bare merino wool.  (Still have yet to find wool that is truly white...sigh.)  Debating whether to make a matching sweater and maybe even longies??

The boys and I are still reading Heidi.  We took a little hiatus as we had other Thanksgiving reading and projects going on so we're still early in the book.  John Paul really enjoys it.  Michael listens but gets a little restless with the long chapters and few pictures but he stays.  It is such a sweet read and I'm enjoying it as well.  I keep meaning to pick up some reading for myself but have yet to get around to it.  It would be good if I could do that before the birth to have some good rest in bed and nurse type of reading!

Hope you're having a wonderful day and check out the rest of Ginny's Yarn Along over here.

  1. Mary, I love those!! Now I've only ever knit some scarves, a small blanket and a hat or two( which I crocheted) is this possible to learn!? Those gloves only took you an hour?? So impressive. The pattern looks so complicated... When we are free I would love to have a knitting night, and you can show me your skills, b/c those are awesome! I love to knit but am still a beginner, very much so. Praying for you as you near your day! Loved reading your birth story!

  2. ove the cable hat, I bet it looks so very cute on a baby!

  3. Thank you! Becky, I just taught myself the knitting thing this past year. It was overwhelming at first but now I love it. There's still a ton I don't know how to do and I'm still a beginner, but I'd love to have a night sometime! And if you saw how small the mitts are, you'd know why they only took an hour. They're so teeny but should be perfect for newborn hands :)

  4. Beautiful, Mary! Hope you ladies have fun knitting:)-Heather

  5. Love, love, love the hat. That is so going to be on the list for every new baby I get to knit for.

  6. Oh that really is a very lovely hat, I forget so quickly just how small new-born hards are.
