Knitting a baby hat

I've got some time to finish a second hat for little Vivian. I didn't need all the yarn for the kimono, so this will work out just fine. I'm winging the pattern, since I couldn't find a decent one for anencephaly. I've made enough hats that I should do okay, and as long as it has a drawstring, she should be alright.

Finished, but disappointed

I'm not happy with how my baby kimono turned out. The sleeves don't quite match. I've now learned to pick up stitches in knitting not purling. They just fit too tightly when purled only in the round. It would be a good trick if I ever need something extra tight fitting, though. Now, I'm looking for a matching hat.

Time to focus on finishing the afghan. The ship out date is fast approaching, then end of year projects are next. So much to do!

The new baby wrap/sling has been completed. I've even worn both boys in it, and they love it. Now, I can move on to other projects, including mending my own clothes. Before I know it, it will be time to start Hallowe'en costumes.

I'm nearing completion on the wall hanging, and making excellent progress on both the baby kimono and afghan. August promises to be a productive month!
