I think I'll make booties instead.

Daylight savings time begins today and spring is in the air this weekend, in spite of the snow still on the ground. We've had weather in the 40s, and sunny skies. To celebrate I knit this springy hat. True, it's being modeled by a snowman, and he really needs to be put away, but he's so cute I'll probably let him stick around awhile - at least until the snow melts! The hat will be gifted to our school secretary who is expecting her first baby in April. It's made with sock yarn (I think it's Lion Brand). The pattern is a Ravelry pattern called Baby Beanie and was really fun to knit. What was not fun to knit was the baby sock I tried for two hours this morning to figure out. I've been wanting to try toe-up socks and thought this would be an easy way - NOT. After 5 tries I did figure out the cast on and it was going great until I got to the heel. I have no problem turning a heel on a top down sock - but going the other way with all the wrap & turns drove me crazy and to the frog pond the sock went.
