Operation Baby Snuggle

It seems so many of my friends are having babies these days. 

It gives me a great chance to try some new patterns that aren't too involved because they are so small.  And what a great way to use up stashed yarns!

The latest project was this knit hat for Steph's soon-to-be-born.

The yarn is Malabrigo Twist; colorway plena.  It's leftover from a custom project and it's simply gorgeous yarn.  Some of the softest wool I've worked with.  It almost feels like a cotton.  
The pattern is Cabled Baby Hats by Julie Hentz; featuring lots of fun cables (I love cables!)

 Next up?  well, I can't say, because I don't want to ruin a surprise!
