…before we get into New Year’s Goals and Resolutions here at the gettinitpegged…
Back in December, I needed a quick baby shower gift for a gal in our local knitting group. I had seen some super cute gnome type baby hats in photographers sample pics and at Etsy, etc. I decided to try my hand at making one using a humongous crochet hook and some brightly colored Jiffy Thick and Quick. I really haven’t crocheted in a long while, as my hands really hurt afterward, but this was pretty quick so I figured I’d be okay. 😉 I did end up a tad sore, but nothing too detrimental.
This little thing is what I came up with:
So…what do you think???
I just winged it, so there’s no pattern at all…just good old fashioned crafting by the seat of the pants, lol. 😉 The fun thing is that there is another gal in the knitting group who is also expecting a baby, so the shower was actually a double baby shower for them both. I made one more little baby hat which IS loom knit! I’m saving that one for later, as the mama is due any time now and she has given permission for a photo shoot with her little sweetum’ and the new loomy hat. 🙂 I can’t wait to show you, as it turned out so cute!
Hope you’re all keeping your own noggin’s warm in this chilly January weather!
