Baby Hats! & Socks Too

I'm knitting some baby hats for the Loopy Ewe challenge. I've had some false starts but these 2 have turned out quite nice. Both are knit in the Vine Lace Baby Hat pattern. The pink/yellow hat is knit in Knit Picks Sock Garden-Stargazer Lily and the green hat is Caron Sport that I've had for forever.

The pink hat is being modeled by one of Mandy's Bitty Babies (they have 13" heads). The green one is over a container that shows off the lace details. Both are knit with the 81 stitches; the pink hat was knit on size 3 and the green on size 5 needles. I'm going to knit another one in a bright blue next (the yarn is Caron Sport also and the color is called "Thunder Blue). I love this pattern!

And in sock news (since I have so many empty needles), I started a plain jane sock in one of the Regia Cotton Surf yarns in my stash. The standard 68 stitches on size US1's. I'm almost ready for a heel flap.
So, that's all the knitting news for now. Have a great holiday weekend, I hope you get to knit some.

I love the hats. Your colors are great. Looks a little lacey though....I'd be dropping the yo's Im sure. Maybe AL can whip one up for a baby that is coming. THanks for a great post.
