FO Friday -- Teensy Weensy Edition

It's always so exciting when I have something to share on FO Friday.  You'd think it would motivate me to knit smallish things all the time, like coin purses and book marks and whatnot.  For the moment though, I think I'll stick to knitting tiny baby hats for Sudden Expression's Preemie hat drive.  They're SO stinking cute.  Seriously...

Told you so.  Forgive the few wonky stitches at the bottom.  It could use a bit of blocking, but I only just wove the ends in a minute ago...  And, if there's a particularly teeny baby in need of a warm noggin, it has a foldable brim feature!  Like so:


 ...and which is especially squee-inducing when it's fluffed up.  I might die of the cute.


For this hat, I used this pattern, which has been knit a whole lotta times by folks on Ravelry.  And I used these modifications, which I love.  If you're not a raveler, you can see them on annypurl's (not-so-up-to-date) blog here.  The yarn?  Some super soft purple stuff I grabbed out of the free box when I worked at Klutz.  I have not idea what it is, but I like it.  This used up the rest of it, so it totally counts as a destash.  Right?  Not that I'm counting or anything...

And now I'm off to celebrate the weekend.  Yay, weekend!  Hope y'all enjoy yours, too!

  8. That hat is so sweet---I love the texture on the turned-up cuff, and the colour reminds me of blueberries. (Yum.)
