Stockinette and garter

Nothing is better suited for hours in the car than some stockinette and garter stitch.

And nothing suits stockinette and garter better than handspun yarn! Four baby hats, all cranked out in the car. I still need to put the finishing touches on these, and then I’ll tell you all about them!

    Yes, what Samm said, I hope there’s a pattern, they are terrific!

    I took up knitting so I had something else to focus on in the car, besides my husband’s tailgating!

    Love those! I like that they’re not baby colors; I tend to get stuck in the baby color rut even though I know most moms don’t like them anymore. Must be my age, but these will inspire me!

    I agree! I love the shape of these hats and the cute yet practical ties. Will there be a pattern for them? Soon? I’ve got a couple of baby gifts in my future this winter and these are exactly the sort of hats I was looking for.

    Terrific! I wish my “boys” were still boys and would wear them…

    Love your blog, admire your knitting, aspire to create so beautifully. Looking forward to more. Especially about your Mum’s vest.

    Giant sock toes! How cute! I can’t tell from the picture if they’re worked from the top or bottom, but that’s one of the most darling hat ideas I’ve ever seen.

    Lovely hats in beautiful colours.

    It’s great to have “simple knits” for long rides on busses, trains or in the car. I love knitting plain socks in vivid colours – I don’t know anybody who needs babyhats ;o)

    Beautiful, as always. I love it when knitters don’t automatically go for the traditional baby colors like light blue and pink.
