So... is it a rule that when you turn 24/25 suddenly you're surrounded with tiny people? Or is that just me?

Anyway, I love making things for people, and I've found that I really enjoy making baby blankets and hats... they're quick, easy projects, and they're just too cute Smiley

I'm 24 and I have two of my own little people, so I understand where you are coming from... I also love how quickly their projects work up. Grin

I love the colors you used for the hat and the blanket. Did you use a pattern for the hat? If so I'd love to know which one.

I did use a pattern for the hat, but just the base. I purchased the Sleeping Owl pattern from this shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/prolesik), and then I opted to use a flower motif that I really like instead of the owl face for this one.

The shop is amazing, and has tons of really cute hats, and most of them use the same base pattern, which comes with multiple sizes.

So, really, if you're creative enough with coming up with your own decorative stuff, you could just buy one pattern and come up with the rest on your own.

This is pretty!

Thank you! I'm really pleased with how it turned out... if only I had a baby girl of my own to keep it for!

The yarn I used for the blanket were Caron Simply Soft in Melon, Sunshine, and Light Country Peach.

The hat is made of Melon and Sunshine, but I had to use double strands in order to get the gauge right.
