Umbilical cord hat -- November 2005

No photo of this, alas -- I failed to take one in time (it was delivered to its intended recipient today, who is four months old and looked adorable in it). You'll just have to believe me when I say it was highly cute.

Details: Umbilical cord hat from Stitch'n Bitch, knitted in RY Cashsoft Baby DK on 4.5mm double-pointed needles.

My gauge was way off so I adjusted the pattern in order to use the yarn I'd got -- the Cashsoft Baby stuff is beautifully soft and lovely to knit with (especially after a month of doing a fiddly lace scarf). Tiny hat, took a couple of nights to finish (was also the first thing I'd done on dp needles, but was very satisfying and very easy).
