I ran out of yarn whilst knitting the new version of the Inspira Cowl. And while I wait for replenishment to arrive, I started knitting an Aviatrix hat for Liepa. In fact, I finished the one from yesterday's wordless WIP Wednesday post and started a new one. Right before finishing the first version I realized it was going to be somewhat too big. So instead of ripping back, I decided to go ahead and finish it. Too big is not a problem for a growing baby. Besides, there is enough yarn, so why not just do a smaller one, right?
To all of you who are thinking of what hat to knit for a baby, I tell you to forget all the strapless ones. They are useless since they come off too easily. Liepa's been wearing her Oma hat constantly and I have a feeling Aviatrix will be a winner as well. Otherwise I wouldn't be knitting a second one.
And here's a proof of my baby wearing handknits not only for the FO pictures.
