Strawberry Baby Hat

This cute little hat is a very quick knit.  There's no intended baby recipient but it is always nice to have a baby gift waiting in my stash of handknits when the occasion arises.

I purchased this yarn at A.C. Moore and it is a joy to work with.  This particular pattern has several "fruit" hats from grapes to pumpkins and Paton's has an excellent choice of colorways for any of these hats. 

The floats are a little long but because it is a hat and there will be no little fingers or toes to get caught in the floats, long is ok.

This coming week is the last class I will be teaching in the latest series of classes.  The money from the classes has been earmarked towards some "fun" things that I am not divulging until I get over a case of "the guilts" so stay tuned.

The wrist has been acting up so there has not been as much knitting as I'd like.  I find that I also tend to knit more when I blog regularly but this darn computer has been extremely tempermental lately.

Happy Knitting!


  1. I love those little 'fruity' hats. The strawberry is adorable!
    I hope the guilt evaporates, so you can enjoy your fun.

  2. Oh, that hat looks gorgeous :) I'm sure a little one will spend lots of time in it!

    And, guilt is the inevitable consequence of responsible people who have fun - you'll get out of it eventually, I'm sure!

  3. I hope you find a recipient soon as I want to see it on some little one's head. A picture please. It's adorable, and I'm glad you blogged about it. Renate

  4. The hat is so cute and thanks for the report on the yarn.

  5. Joansie, been a while but I have enjoyed catching up on your blog. You've been a busy lady I see.Lots of pretty work.

  6. Very cute hat. I think I need to make that one.

  7. I love all of the "fruit" hat patterns, but yours is especially pretty with that yummy yarn. I love knitting baby things too, and I like the idea of just having a couple of gifts handy.
