Welcome hat for Baby C.

Pete's cousin and his wife are expecting a new baby boy this month.  New babies and showers mean baby knitting!  

I made this hat for the shower with Plymouth Jean-nee, a nice soft blend of cotton and acrylic.  It comes in some great colors.  I chose the lightest and darkest blue for a one-row stripe spiral.  The technique is really cool, but confusing until you do it.  (Even when I knit it, I didn't quite get it, but it worked!)  You can see the tutorial from Grumperina that inspired it here.  

"Thanks for letting me model, Mom!" 
Pete didn't want to be on the blog, so I tried to crop out his grumpy morning face as much as I could.  Sorry you're still there honey!
