Baby Hats made with Sock yarn!

Hi Everyone,

Today, I am going to show you a little bit of fun that I discovered a while ago.  As you know from previous posts, part of our Charitable Knitting in our group at the Cathedral, is baby hats for the newborns at Kent County Hospital. 
I have accrued a lot of sock yarn, in my efforts to actually begin to learn to MAKE socks--haven't quite got there yet!!-- and it occured to me that it was the same weight as yarn that we use for hats.  So, I have started to make some hats out of the really cute self-patterning yarn that is ordinarily used for socks.

Tell me what you think:

So, have a great day! 


  1. I love the colors in the sock yarn!!! They are stunning. I bet these hats made some very happy moms. What a gift!!! I had to go back to crocheting as knitting frustrated me too much. But each time I see your knitted work it makes me want to break out some needles. You have inspired me to crochet some hats tonight.

  2. Hi Judye,
    How is your knitting coming along? If you want to join our knitting group on Tuesday mornings, drop me an email. A nice group of people who like helping other knitters!
