I’ve decided not to feel guilty about the cadence of my blogging lately. I’m growing a baby in my belly and I’m working a ton – between the two, it’s not leaving a lot of time for fun! This is the last week of my 2nd trimester and I’m feeling pretty good overall. I did just fail my 1-hour glucose test though…so I have to take the 3-hour test for gestational diabetes. Ugh. Keep your fingers crossed that I don’t have GD…I love my carbs too much!!! (Which is probably a hint on why I might be susceptible to GD – I know, I know – karma.)
But between the crib shopping and crazy clients I am squeezing in a wee bit of crafting. Of course, it’s baby-related.
This book is so much fun! And since we’re due in the Winter, it’s safe to assume we’ll need lots of head coverings. I have to admit, knitting for a little girl is really fun. Sure, a boy could have an Upside-down daisy on his head, but it just wouldn’t have the same cache, would it?
To keep it soft for baby’s sweet skin, I knit it up in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. It’s snuggly soft and so warm. It’s a super quick knit (as all baby items tend to be) as you just knit a basic little cap (switching colors when you reach the I-cord at the top) and knit the petals separately and sew them on.
The only thing I’m vaguely worried about is whether the rolled brim will make it uncomfortable for the baby to wear the hat while lying down. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Will the extra little bulk there be annoying for the baby’s head?
