Cover Your Head Knitalong

I can finally post!!!!

I joined this KAL early on. I've been reading each and every post. I didn't have the yarn I needed to start my own hats. Then when I had the yarn, I didn't have the needles I needed. Finally I have yarn, and I have needles, and I have my first ever hat all done!!! Woo hoo. (Excuse the small stuffed bear as my model. There were no baby heads near by.)

Other people have posted this hat already, and I got inspired to knit it as my very first. It's the Umbilical Cord Hat from Stitch 'n Bitch. I knit mine in DB Baby Cashmerino, a very soft yarn that is very easy to knit with. It's also machine washable, which is a must for baby stuff. I double tied my "umbilical cord" to give it more of a knot look and less of a cord look. This is my first gift to my best friend's second child (who I am sure is a girl, but used yellow yarn just in case).

Up next, my first attempt at an adult hat, for my DH.
