Stocking cap

blog 004, originally uploaded by alexcateye.

I tried to knit Lacy Bed Socks, but the shaping was horrible. They ended up looking like the pants male gymnasts wear with the weird stirrup ankles. I unraveled them and salvaged a baby hat from one sock. I like it.

I plan to give it to a nonknitter at my church. I used my hand spun yarn. It's so soft. I hate to give handwash only items to new moms, but a hat shouldn't need too much washing. (Unless that baby is a real puker.) Especially a spring hat for a new baby. Sigh. Life moves on...
