Last Night's Project

Last night I took a break from the BBBB to whip up a baby hat for a completely different baby. I took about 4 hours (give or take) and knit this hat up. It is called a Fuzzy Wuzzy Baby hat and I knit most of it on a 16" size 6 circular needle, but used dpn at the end for the last decreases. I cast on 72 stitches and used both the variegated and eyelash novelty yarn for the first 4 rows. I have it displayed here on a vase, but it doesn't do it justice. I have enough yarn left over to make a matching pair of infant socks! I am going to make another set for another baby boy who is also on his way this spring. Is everyone experiencing a baby boom in their areas?

Just so you know, I did intend to post this last night, but after the knitting binge, I ran out of steam to get the camera out and write this up. I got done just before midnight, so I decided that I could post this "first thing this morning." I realize it's afternoon now ... :)

Finishing a project in an evening - are you trying to make me look bad? (I didn't say "us" because e Sari may also be able to make me look bad). Joking aside, it looks very cute and great for a gift. By the way - I need 16" #6 needles for TH's vest and my LYS was out of Addi Turbo's in that size - can I borrow yours? You don't mind shipping them overnight mail to me, right? And then I'll return them in Louisville.

Well, I don't mind if you borrow the needles, but I can't go to Louisville after all. My 16" #6 needles are not Addi Turbo's, though, just plain bamboo. I'm looking for two sets of 2.5mm dpn for a pair of socks, do you have any? If you loan me yours, it'd be great. I have to order them, neither of my LYS has them.
