I wasn't a
After that I got smart and decided that themes were much more fun. For Valentine's Day I went with a flower theme. I realize I should've used hearts or something more in tune with the day, but my color scheme was Valentine's Day-ish and I couldn't resist the fun flower theme. I made a kimono sweater that I found on Ravelry, but I don't think I'll make it again. I found a better kimono pattern that I would use next time. I also knit an upside down daisy hat, a petal bib, a washcloth and a pacifier clip. This group of items used a cotton blend yarn which will be more suitable for the spring/early summer when I expect that she will be able to use it. I always harbor a secret fear that people won't like the items I knit for them. That babies will never wear the things I give them. I know this is silly because I've heard stories about how often people have had their kids in my sweaters, and my little neighbor won't go anywhere, including bed, without her "ponchina".
Of all the Valentine's knitting, the Upside Down Daisy Hat is really my favorite. How could you not like this little hat? It was a little bit fiddly, but really.. what isn't? I love how cute and fun it is, and I hope my SIL doesn't think it too "out there" and let's T wear it. Often.
