Baby Hat 8-2007 1

With a little time to spare I was able to finish these double knit mittens at my knitting get together on Saturday morning. It took me almost 3 hours to seam! There were 4 edges but still seaming should not take so long. I really wanted to stitch the word Autobot on them but that would have required a few more days that I didn’t have.

We had an early Christmas on Saturday for the nephews this year since they are going to be out of town next week. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of him actually wearing it (I was the designated videographer) but trust me, it was adorable.

The hat is big enough for him to grow into and the mittens fit perfectly now. Which is good since I’m sure he won’t fit them (the mittens) next winter.

I think I’ll be taking a break from double knitting for awhile. My left hand tenses up because I’m trying too hard to keep both strands tension equal. It makes really warm and cozy looking hats/mittens but my fingers need a rest.
