/baby aviator


I made (and love) a hat.
It is mini.

Also, I've been away for far too long and wanted to say hello!
It's been a little crazy in the sewing room lately because I am into another round of bridesmaids' dresses, so I've been trying to take knitting breaks (I call them "knitting breaks" even though they are really "television breaks". This is a technicality) as often as possible.

I needed to make something for an awesome kid's first birthday, and after sifting through countless cute baby things, this is what I found.
A baby aviator hat.

The pattern: Regan Baby Aviator Hat

After sewing on the buttons, realized that I am a horrific baby project planner. This thing is for a baby, yet it has buttons (worry not, I sewed them down real tight) and is made of scratchy wool. I still need to add an organic bamboo knit lining so the baby's parents won't assume I'm trying to give the little guy a skin condition.

I used (Cascade 220) leftover from my stormy turban WHICH, completely coincidentally, has been named Project of the Week over at Kollabora! There's a flattering little write-up on their blog with some suggested materials and design ideas. Thanks, Kollabora! I totally appreciate it.

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and the first days of fall!

    Shubhi's Revels!

    1. Thanks! He's a super cute baby to begin with, so I don't think he could go wrong. :)
