I have yet another hat on the needles. If you decide to make one for your newborn, I hope you'll also consider making one for charity. Alli's pattern is done flat and then seamed, but because I hate to sew, if I don't have to, I did mine in the round. You can use 16" circulars until your second decrease, then you'll have to switch to either magic loop or dpns to finish them off.
I've also been making some more bibs. Here's a picture of Bert and Ernie that I did just on a whim. Because the characters are copyrighted, I won't be posting any directions, but I thought you might like to see it. I was really limited by the size so I know it isn't great, but at least my older grandsons know who they are!
I have another dinosaur bib too, but I won't be posting that until I check the pattern...again. I'm finding it very difficult to post directions, because the stress of wondering how many mistakes there might be is keeping me from enjoying sharing patterns. Thank you to all of you who have pointed out errors. I'm also really grateful for those of you who have also told me when you haven't found any!
