I knew it had been awhile since I blogged, but hadn't realized it's been 4 months. I knew that aside from my secret sample knitting, I hadn't been knitting very much so didn't have much to share 'til now. The secret sample knitting however, are still secret.

I also finally got around to knitting a baby hat to coordinate with the Lilianna cardigan shown in my last post.
I also made a moss stitch/seed stitch baby beret to coordinate with the Lucky baby cardigan I knit a couple years back. These will be gifts for the next family or friend who has a baby girl.
