i realized that i never posted my complete quartet of preemie hats. here they are, residing on my wine tree in the garden enjoying some sunshine. the first i made was the purple/blue swirl in the back. i used sock yarn that i found with a coupon at joanns. it is charming how the swirls and colors work so well together. the next i completed was the girlie pink one on the left. again, coupon yarn in shades of pink with some white and green tossed in. since it was pink (and girlie) i made it in an eyelet version. the picture doesn't show it well, but it starts with light pink, moves to the deeper pinks, then ends in the white with green. i decided that i needed to concentrate on smaller sizes. the recommendation was a hat to fit on a lemon. really. so the two lavender hats are tiny and they do fit on a lemon :) on the left is the diamond version and the right is hearts.
i've taken a short hiatus to do my sample knitting, but i think i have to make another set. they were just so dear to knit.
