Baby hat - done!

2007 Finishes: Knitting

Yes, I realize that the only projects I've finished so far this year have been for infants. I think it's a combination of how small and cute the items are and how firm the deadline is.

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria in... Olive? Pistachio? Avocado? None of the pictures look particularly close to the yarn in my hand.
Needles: 4.5mm Brittany birch DPNs
Pattern: Made up as I went along

Comments: I'd been wanting to try this yarn for years, and I'm glad I finally did. It's extremely soft and gorgeous to work with. It does not, however, show texture well, and it was so impossible to get the stitches even that I eventually gave up and made it a design element.

I love this hat! How were the birch needles to knit with on the cotton?

It looks wonderfully soft and squooshy.

Looks great. Glad to hear you liked the yarn because I've been curious about it for a while. I've also seen it look really nice in garter stitch, given the unevenness.

I think it's a good look! Manos is pretty yummy stuff. That is one lucky baby! ;)
