Because my buddies needed new hats.

Since the last time I wrote, I've started far too many projects and knit on them and the ones that I already had in progress far too little. But when the weather turned earlier than expected, I found myself with no hats to keep the twins' still mostly hairless little heads warm. Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap to the rescue!

Pattern: Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap by Gro; 131 stitches cast on
Yarn, etc.: Koigu KPPPM; Addi Turbo circular needles (size 2.5mm and 3mm), and Knit Picks double pointed needles (size 3mm)
Mods: Added a couple of extra garter rows in beginning and completed 15 increase/decrease rows instead of the 11 rows the pattern called for; picked up 5 stitches on each side and knitted 10 inches of i-cord for ties

I just love this pattern. Each hat took me only about two days to knit, and really, could they be any cuter? Now to get back to that pile of UFOs...

No, the hats could not be any cuter. But they're not as cute as the twins!
