Baby Snuggie

Ugh. knitSB couldn't help himself and bought on of these. It was on SALE! *face palm*

I knit another baby hat out of Rowan Calmer. I'm rather fond of the inside of the hat for it's reverse stockinette row when I changed colors. I'll be using this design feature the next time I knit another baby hat. Or a hat for me. I have enjoyed the simple design of this hat. It knits up quickly on a size 5 needle. K2P2 rib is not the fastest knitting for me in the round but the stretch of the pattern is quite pleasing.




The idea of knitting a plain round in the new color comes from an Elizabeth Zimmermann book when she's talking about knitting some socks with replaceable soles. The stretch of the K2P2 rib was not impacted at all.

no, he did not get the 2 for 1 deal. He tracked it down at Walgreens. He did get a free book light with the purchase.

I've seen the booklight, and it looks worth what he paid for the snuggie.....they are like a bathrobe, but open from the back right? just checking....
