Candy Cane Hats

I am one of those people that just cannot do Christmas prior to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and I want to enjoy fall and Halloween and Thanksgiving first, thank you very much. This year though I have to make an exception, given that I may or may not have had the baby by then. So, to be prepared, I made and finished two Candy Cane hats from "Itty Bitty Hats" - which is a great book! I didn't intend to make two - I made the newborn size and it just looks so tiny! It's a quick enough knit, that I made the next size up (0-3 months) and that seems a little better. Hopefully my kiddo won't arrive with a head much bigger than that!

And since I have the two hats, I am certain not one person who knows me would be surprised to see a photo of Jackson and the baby in matching hats.
