PIP Baby Hat


Here in the South of England we have been having a bit of a heatwave - six days of warm sunshine! It has been lovely for me as I have not been at work, and have been able to enjoy it . I have spent a couple of hours each day sitting in the garden with a book ....... noticing the smell of the grass and flowers, listening to the birds, and looking at the few clouds pass overhead ......
 
It has been too hot to knit much - so all I have to show for the week is a pile of baby hats!
 
Here is my latest pattern. It is simple - but I hope you think it is cute too!
