I saw this adorable little baby bonnet over at The Purl Bee and I knew that it would be the perfect present for my new nephew who is due to arrive in July.
Its a lovely construction of short rows, just like a sock and there is an icord edging that is knitted on. Two styles of knitting that I really enjoy.
I have chosen a wool/cashmere blend that I am also making a baby blanket from, it is such a soft yarn. Perfect for little babies. I have finished the hat and now just have the icord edging to do, it looks so sweet!
Here is the matching blanket...
All snugly and soft. My brother lives down south near Sydney so it will be cold when my nephew arrives and I think hand knitted wool is the perfect baby present don't you?
Enjoy your weekend, my males are outside splitting firewood. It seems winter has started early this year!
