Don't be jealous, but I was first. I love being first. I deny being competitive, but I am. Over silly stuff. Like pirogi making, knitting, and other non-sport things. Put a ball in front of me and the competition melts away.
Today I bribed a new mom with dinner, and got to meet a sweet little baby boy.
That pacifier isn't especially large. Its just that Jude was in a big hurry to meet his mama. He is a wee man right now. So I knit him a little cotton hat to keep his noggin warm while he concentrates on growing big and strong like his brother, Luther.
The pattern is this one and knit up with some leftover Knit Picks Shine Worsted and size 6 needles.
I did deviate from the pattern just a touch. I thought it needed some flair. So I ended with a short three-stitch i-cord to tie into a knot. I think it looks a little like a vine or a stem of some kind.
I thought that it would be too big. And then I thought it would be too small. But it turns out it was just right. It fit now with the brim folded up, and there is plenty of room to grow!
