October was a pretty busy month for me! I can’t believe everything I managed to finish! I knit a lot of baby hats for a newborn session I had during the middle of the month! I finished this one while waiting for the mom to get ready for her session when she called and asked me to give her a little extra time.
Then I finished up this adorable little dot hat.. I had just purchased a pom maker and decided to top the hat with a huge funky pom. It’s a little large for a newborn but that is kind of the look I was going for.. over-sized. I have a tea cup prop that I am also hoping to get to try out this little hat with! I think it will be a perfect match!
Since the baby was due in October, I figured nothing said fall like pumpkins so I made a little pumpkin hat! He was so adorable in it and it fit him perfectly! Isn’t this one little pumpkin you’d love to bring home?!
One of the women in our knitting group was expecting and we organized a sampler blanket for her.. we each knitted a square or two and sent them off to a someone who stitched the blanket and sent it on.. Here’s my squares (only the gray one in this photo was used, I sent a golden snitch square for my second. I kept the white and gray one for future projects)!
Not everything in October was baby knitting though! A while back I made a porom out of white sparkly yarn.. well it turns out the sparkly yarn is itchy! so I have made another and this time I am using a DK weight.. it’s much softer but not very warm.. but I love it none the less! It’s made from a sea blue-green tweed yarn.. and I just love it to bits! The color however, is very hard to photograph in doors.
