Hiccups and Hats (Finished!)

A friend of mind requested a newsboy style hat for her very-adorable new baby. Eeee, baby hats!

I had a couple hiccups in the making of this hat. The first hiccup occurred when I looked at the listed measurements for a 3-6 month old hat and declared to myself, "Oh no, that's much too small," and proceeded to make just a smidge bigger.

Three quarters of the way done and I suddenly realized the hat was much to large. To prove it to myself, I plunked it down on my 2 year old's blonde head. Fit like a glove (but in a hat sort of way). So, I unraveled the majority and began again. Note to self: Babies are that small. And math doesn't lie.

The second hiccup occurred when I went it came time to photograph the hat. Laying it flat was a bit uninspired. Where's a 3 month old when you need one? So I dug through the not-very-vast collection of stuffed animals my boys have acquired and this little St. Bernard popped right out, ready for the task of hat wearing. He's too small, but you get the idea.

Finishing touches. :) Now to pack it up and mail it out!
