pregnancy hibernation

There could only be a few reasons I'm only getting around to posting pictures of a snowy January day in mid-March. I'm pretty sure I hibernated a little bit last time I was pregnant too. There just isn't much time left for taking pictures and writing when you have two littles to chase around and you're feeling the first trimester yuck! I'm 16 weeks now and almost back to feeling normal, and the new baby should join us some time in August. We're so blessed and excited to receive the gift of life again. Each stage in the life of our family is so precious and we're just trying to soak up all the goodness in this time.

Jane's Vintage Pixie Cap

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along today! I can't help but knit this pixie hat for every baby in my life. Indy and Tenny each have (had) one (Tenny's may be lost since I haven't been able to find it for several months - he has quite the penchant for removing his hat in the grocery store and waving it precariously around). It's just such a quick and easy knit, since it is knit flat and then seamed along the back, and of course it's so darn cute. I knit the 3-6 month size for my niece Jane, who is just coming up on three months, and it fits well with a little room to grow. Of course I didn't check my gauge so I have no idea if the size is really true, but I'd say it seems to be.

I was able to use up some stash wool for this - Stonehedge Fiber Mill's Shepherd's Wool for the body of the hat, and Spud and Chloe's sweater yarn for the contrasting trim and tie. This hat actually calls for a button neckband, but since I have found that to stretch out on the hats I've previously knit, I replaced it with a simple i-cord for tying this time around - no button scrounging required. Raveled here.
