Now I want an adult-sized one too!

Project: Lacy Baby Bonnet in Knitting for Two
Materials: Sz 3 & 5 24" circs, Zegna Baruffa Aerobic Yarn (100% superfine merino in red)
Notes: Will forgo the huge-ass ribbon which creates the Princess Leia look, but attach 2 i-cords instead. Since my i-cording skills suck, will be using my nifty Clover Wonder Knitter (can you say...what a lazy ass?). Will be using leftover yarn for baby mittens.

Continuing with the process of gift knitting, here's the lacy bonnet that every baby gift knitter seems to be raving about. (Andrea's making one the exact same time I was making this too!) I have a lot of leftover yarn (and it is soft as a baby's butt) so I will probably whip up a pair of mittens since the little munchkin who will be receiving these likes scratching her face. You might be taken aback with the really bright red, but since the recipient's mommy loves red, I am hoping the baby will get to wear this more often than once. Hell if she doesn't like it, I'd be more than willing to recycle the fine merino for moi. Ha Ha. Okay, I am just kidding. I am not that terrible a person.

'Tis the season for making those lacy bonnets I guess because I just finished one myself. They are cute as heck and quite easy to knit. If the mommy likes red, she probably won't mind her child in red too.

ah, that color is fantastic! definitely woke me up on this sleepy monday morning ;)

no really, i love seeing baby stuff knit up in non-typical baby colors. i blame my barely-off-white bonnet on the unofficial rules of baptisms, "all white, or else!"
