"KLove Baby Hat...."

Oh, yes....I needed some more "instant" satisfaction before I delve into a ripple afghan of my own.  So here was my Sunday project.  Pale blue yarn from my stash (think it's Bernat Satin?).

 I modified this pattern by working on two needles (I am not a huge fan of double points or magic loop) and upped the yarn from a DK to a worsted.  I love the look of a dense and close weave when knitting baby items. 

                                                                Oh it is sooooo sweet.....

                                                        and such a perfect blue!

KLOVE radio station is asking for handmade knit hats to be distributed on a mission trip to Afghanistan the end of February.  No one needed to convince me to start a few hats to send.  You can find all the details here.  This little blue boy hat will be off with several others in a week or so. 

Now I have the bug...going to knit up another one!  White with a flower perhaps!?
