I wanted to make a little baby shower gift for the son of one of my friends.
The couple are expecting their first baby - a boy - and have planned a nautical baby shower party.
I didn't even know that shower parties are themed these days ! I thought that that the new baby was the theme! I must be getting a bit out of touch!
Anyway - I sat down to make a couple of little hats - and then I just got carried away ........ I was so enjoying myself that I seem to have made four little hats already, with another on the needles !!
