The Great Thing About Knitting Baby Things

The great thing about knitting baby things, is that you hardly have to worry about fit. So what if it's too big! If it's one thing babies do, it's grow. And sooner or later, your baby is going to grow into your hand knit.

I, for example, knit a hat for Max when he was a baby that ended up a wee bit too large...

14 years later he goes looking for a hat to wear to his track meet and I've got just the thing ...

Holy crap, he looks so grown up! (and not just because it's next to a baby pic). Must be the hat. ;-)

I just had to chuckle! My husband has become a knitting "hat specialist", and his favorite saying is that "it will always fit somebody, sometime"!
