So when I got back to LA I got some little needles and a ball of yarn from Michael Levine and tried to think of something to make. I started a couple things, but nothing was right. I can't do sweaters and stuff, not yet anyway, they're too intimidating. I didn't want to make a little bunny, since I already plan to sew her one out of felt. A scarf would be easy, but I'm pretty sure babies don't wear scarves. Other people will be making me blankets. Then I had it, the most darling twee thing for a little baby girl, the sort of thing she will roll her eyes at later, the sort of thing I'll have to be careful about posting on Facebook, least I ruin my cool girl image (kidding, kidding)...
A baby bonnet!
So I searched "free knit bonnet pattern," queued up a movie on Netflix, and by the end of the evening I had made this:
And would you look at that! The most bonnety of bonnets. Super easy but looks complicated, just how I like things. I have no idea if it will fit her little head or not, but I am pleased. Maternal and pleased.
