Stella's Hat

Using Noro Silk Garden yarn...
Knit mostly in the car coming back from the Poconos
This was the second of these hats I've knit. The last project I finished in 2008 was this hat in Ecological Wool for my sister Daeva. On the way to the Poconos.

And the needles are going like mad around here! Is it the nesting instinct kicking in already?!?

I saw this lovely Haiku sweater pattern from Knitty and decided it looked like a fun knit. I made it for my friend who is due with her second child about 2 weeks before me. Her first child is about 2 weeks older than my son! We are really in sync in the baby department :)

Anyway, this really is a haiku pattern. Simple, fun to knit, and easy to sew up. I used some leftover Classic Elite Yarns Waterspun in a pretty purple, and added some light blue buttons (they don't come out so well in the picture).
