the busy blogger

For some reason, I've gotten on this wave of knitting preemie hats for the babies in the NICU where I work. This one is for a specific baby that is there now. I took care of his mom the other day and bonded with her so I came home and modified a preemie cap pattern I found online. I believe its called The Fairisle. It was knit on two needles and called for more stitches. I did it on dpns and did it with less stitches. I have to bind off the last 7 stitches and weave in the ends but after that its done. I also added more ribbing and left off some moss stitch. I used lion brand cotton ease in the taupe, blue, green, and off white colors.
