Hats for Small Heads
So, I took that Spunky handspun and made some baby hats. One for our baby and one for Jon and Kelly's baby (Nate's best friend, they're expecting a girl 2 weeks after us!).
Baby hats are so quick to knit, and cute too. I started a little baby dress too. More handspun, of course! All those single skeins of handspun in pretty colors, they have found their destination.
