Really, I seriously have perhaps 5 posts saved up. What am I doing with them? Why haven't I posted them? I couldn't tell you. Well, here is one:
The scale is a little hard to gauge, but this is a little baby hat for a newborn. It would roughly fit a grapefruit, maybe a small cantaloupe. A dear friend of my mother-in-laws is having a baby and so my mother-in-law asked me to make this for her. We visited an alpaca farm (!I know, next post I promise will have details about this!) and we got this yarn there. It is so super soft and will be super warm for this little Fall baby in New England. Also, that pompom on top is 100% alpaca and is certainly the softest pompom I've ever made.
The whole operation only took about two nights, with a third night for adding those faces and making the pompom. The pattern is a free download on ravelry.com if you are a member, which is free, so if you need a quick baby hat, check it out!
