Why do people insist on picking on my beautiful baby?
Seriously, the next person who calls her scrawny is getting a pinch. She is long (21 inches), and slender (just over 7 pounds) and lovely. She is chubbing up and getting adorable cheeks. Believe me, she is NOT scrawny.
Plus, she's got this adorable kitty hat.
Cat-eared baby hat
made with remnant Colinette Jitterbug from my Mermaid Mitts, on 2.25 and 2.5 mm needles. I did most of this hat while I was in the hospital with the baby, waiting for her to wake up and feed.
Motivation? They put this godawful pink acrylic garter hat on her -- and it had a seam up the back! Now, I am in fact a fibre snob, so I knit as fast as I could to replace that thing with this hat -- but I wasn't fast enough. I feel pretty badly about being so ooked out by that hat though, someone took the time to make it out of the goodness of her heart. I just wish they had saved it for a baby that NEEDED it. We had 3 or 4 hand knit hats in her bag!
