First project of 2009 and first completed project of 2009! Yes, another baby hat, this time out of recycled cashmere and I tell you, it was such a joy to knit with. Really soft and the loops just slipped through each other beautifully.

The vital statistics
baby hat from Leigh Radford's One Skein.
Yarn: cashmere recycled from a sweater purchased the previous weekend at Goodwill. Still have heaps left so there will be more items made from this.
Needles: 4.55mm Addi turbo.
Start to finish: 8 January 2009 to 9 January 2009.

What can I say about this pattern that I haven't said before? Perhaps that I would like to find another lace edging to try out on it, repeat of 18 stitches (or just nine really). Must find a copy of Barbara Walker somewhere ...
Verdict: cashmere bliss.
