Cable Knit Hat
My one-woman knitting rampage continues. I tried my hand at a cable knit baby hat - more like a toddler cap, but you get the idea. I think it came out kind of cute. It's a cable knit pattern that you do for 18 inches (I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease on a size 8 needle), bind off, and then pick up and knit 77 inches for on one long side of the cable. The rest is just garter stitch with some simple decreases, pulling the top closed and seaming up.
Alex is sitting here playing with his magnetic book. He's putting the cow next to the milk picture and I said, "Where you get milk?" He looks up and says, "Daddy." Is that not a great out of the mouths of babes moment?
