One of my office mates and his wife had their first baby, a boy, yesterday.
I knitted a cute newborn hat using a pattern I found on my new knitting-crush website Ravelry. The yarn, Loop & Threads Charisma Sunny Day, was such fun to work with and came out much softer than I expected. I used a #8 needle instead of a #7, so it’s bigger than newborn size but he’ll grow into it.
Also added a tie onesie to the gift. It was the first one I’d made and it’s so easy! I used lightweight brown felt and simply cut out the necktie shape, hand-tacked it in place, top-stitched around on the machine, and then removed the hand tacking. Will definitely be making these for baby boys again.
Welcome baby Ayaan!
