My needles are suddenly brimming with hats. Their crowning achievement.

Okay, so I ended this one by taking a small crochet hook, starting at the second-from-end stitch, and chain-stitching a length and then running the end in to make a loop. Makes a nice little colors-of-the-forest halo for the baby, don’t you think?

While it’s all carefully rounded out like that for the camera, anyway. In real life, I stepped back to admire the achievement and, as that loop danced the twist, was suddenly struck speechless by its extreme likeness of an unintended Teletubbie.

(It’s all good.)

Hi, Alison. Just saw a knitlis postthat made me scoot over here (I’ve been out of the loop for far too long). Congrats on the newest addition to your family. We also welcomed a tiny grandson (in September) who was also early (34 weeks). Conor (Tiny Prince Two/Too is doing well and is much loved by his big brother (Tiny Prince Original).

To quote Erma Bombeck (I think) If I had known how much fun grandchildren could be, I would have had them first!

What a darling wee hat! Can you starch the little loop into submission?

‘S’OK. Baby’s heads kind of look like teletubbies, too.

Beautiful colors in the hat! And with the loop, it could be hung on a Christmas tree.

It’s “good.” (understatement.)

I love it. I believe the loop would need to be more donut sized to truly say Teletubby.
