The Heart of the Matter

I finished the Heart Hat. (For those looking to make their own, it's in Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop.) I am pleased with the way it turned out, and though I would have rather made it with a bright red heart and ties and white for the rest, and in wool, these are pretty traditional grands, so the lavender and pastels was appropriate. And the acrylic will be easy care for the new parents.

It is, after all, a token gift, not the new baby's entire wardrobe. Damn, I hate being practical!

The week is shaping up to be another from-hell one. Folks off Monday, audit Tuesday, different audit today, press visit tomorrow. Yikes! The good news is that there's a three-day weekend looming on the near horizon. Let us all be grateful for Dead Presidents (and everything that implie$).
OOH I love the heart baby hat. I have the instructions in EZ's Knitting Workshop? Anyway, it is so nice to see it worked up! Argh about your week! Hope it goes fast and smooth.
Yep, pithy directions start on p. 155 with the i-cord trim info on p. 106.

I used baby weight yarn on size 3's (the pattern calls for 4 st/in for an adult size).
