Funny things can happen to us in the middle of the night. Especially if this is the third night in the row to be up with a baby, who wants to eat all the time. Then the crazy with exhaustion brain comes up with things like this little baby hat. I hope you will find it as funny as I do. It is very easy and fast to knit. Would take about an hour or so, unless you are constantly interrupted by your nearest and dearest.
I love making little things for little babies. They knit up fast, need little yarn and, let’s face it, practically anything looks good on babies. So, here is a little hat and socks set I made for my little DD #4.I have actually finished the “Baby Lace Hat” while I was in Sea Gate. But I just got around to writing up the pattern for it. It is a pretty little hat, that is perfect for the time when the
My thanks to all, who came and looked at my knitting puzzle.Yes, it is a hat. I love Noro and I love playing with the stripes, so I found a way to make them go vertically. Here is a pattern for my Vertical Noro Hat.This is a very simple hat. It is knit flat and then seamed up. It looks very interesting and is fun and fast to make. Even a very timid knitter can do it. Perfect for the beginner, but fun even if you are
I did it! I have finally got my notes together and finished writing out a new pattern for this cute cabled hat. I am calling this one “Love Knots”. I have never really played with cables before. So much fun! Now I will do it more often. The only thing to remember is that cables make everything pull in. A lot! The first version of this hat came out like a broomstick cosy.Well, now it is done, done, done!..
In the last two weeks my writing was very sporadic. The kids are out of school, they are like gas. They fill up every second of the time I have. Not that there was any extra time to begin with. Also I am preparing a few patterns for sale. And I have knit and crochet a lot. It is interesting how I really use the word “knit” when I talk about either knitting or crocheting. There is just one word for both in
Finally! I have finished my AcciDental Skirt! Not only that, but I have written the pattern for it too. Trust me, knitting is a lot easier than pattern writing. This will be my first multi-size pattern. It will cover sizes from 6 months to 10 years. As a gift, I am making it available free (size 12-18 months and only until July 7th) on my Chicken Stitches Google group. If you are not a member you can join it by follo
Every crafter I know have been confronted by this emergency. Your sister, niece, cousin, friend or neighbour just had a baby, this means you need a baby gift, pronto. Preferably yesterday. Here is my solution to this problem. A really fast baby hat. Sometimes I make a bunch of them ahead of time, but even if I do not have any “in stock”, they take me about an hour to make. They will usually fit the baby u
Well, the computer is fixed and I am back. Let this be a lesson to me, I have to do the back up, or else… Luckily for me most of the info is recovered from the old computer and the cameras. I am so happy that I do most of my writing in Google Docs, so it was safe. I lost a lot of audio books that I was planing to put on my external hard drive, but kept procrastinating. It could have been a lot worse. This has b
My friend Menucha has another granddaughter and this means I get to do some tiny baby things. I have crocheted a little baby hat reminiscent of those “Juliet Hats” big people wear. Unfortunately, I did not have an appropriate sized baby handy, so I had to use an apple instead. A free PDF version of this pattern is available in my Ravelry store.

I have finished the green dress. It is really good. And looks like the baby likes it too. I am very proud of myself not only for designing and knitting a really good dress but also for writing out a pattern. It is a line by line, “idiot proof” format that even tells you how many stitches there are at the end of each row. This pattern will also work wonderfully for sizing up with thicker yarn on thicker ne
