Project #10 - Knitted Bonnets

A while back, after having knitted scarves and blanket squares for a while, I decided I needed a knitting challenge. I figured I might as well have a go at making some baby things as they would be small and I could also use them as gifts if they turned out alright.

I fell in love with a bonnet pattern I found in a baby pattern book, so i started knitting those. Unfortunately I strongly dislike working with wool in the summer months, so I put them aside when it got hot and subsequently forgot about them!

I dug them out of the knitting bag a couple of weeks back and finished them off, but I still needed to stitch the row of lazy daisies on the front and put the ribbon ties on. Here is a picture of them completed:

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much of a demand for hand knitted goods any more, so I am not sure what I am actually going to do with them. We do have a friend due in two weeks who I think would appreciate them, so I may give them to her as a gift (providing she gets the girl she is praying for!)
