I got a third baby hat out of that purple skein of yarn. This one will also be for click for babies.
The third mandala from “Modern Crochet Mandalas”, this one by Melinda Miller. Now, this one was frustrating. There was a mistake in the directions in almost every row. I did a lot of frogging. I found that by reading the directions and looking at the diagram, I could figure out what was needed. Proof reading, people. Proof reading!
This is the second baby hat that I’ve made for Click For Babies.
This one is my own design. Same yarn as before. Same skein, even.
I went to Vancouver’s Knitting Guild meeting with my mom last week. One of the members was giving away purple yarn to make newborn baby hats for Click for Babies. I didn’t have any kids, so I don’t know from experience, but newborn babies can cry for no reason. Purple hats are given to parents when they take their newborns home. This is a reminder that crying is normal and to not get frustrated. There are patterns on the website. I used a pattern by Elisa Purnell. The yarn I was given is Lion’s Micro Spun yarn.
