More Cute Baby Hats

Remember the last set of hats I did? Well, I'm still at it trying different yarns and variegated colors.  And I'm learning a few things. 
This first hat is a yarn I bought at Joann's a couple of years ago that I was going to make socks with.  That hasn't happened.  I decided to use it on a baby's hat.  It came out stripey which did disappoint me even though now I like it.  I found out if you take the wrapper off and look at the skein that way, you'll get a good idea how it will knit up.  That worked for this yarn and for the Fabels.  So when I go to buy I know what to do.  That is on a 6 month old cousin of Eloise, Hannah.

 She did a really good job of always moving her head so I could get pics at different angles.  It's like she knew she was posing.

The rest of these yarns are Drops Fabel.  I just made different sizes.  This first is a 12-18 month.  Lawson gets to enjoy this hat all winter long.  Isn't he cute?  I like his little nose.

Then I made the larger size hats.  This is a size 2.  I was going to try it on Annie's younger sister, but she didn't want to put a hat on.  Annie, who I think is 3 was ready and willing to pose.  She got in position and put on a smile and it just said "I'm ready"  Head sizes don't change much when children get certain ages and this hat fit her fine.  And she does make a cute picture.

 This color is Guacamole.  Doesn't it look like that?

 And this last hat is the largest size 3-4.  I'm not sure how old Ethan is but this hat goes on him well also.  He wears it like the big boys would - untied.  I love how all the colors play out in these Fabel yarns.
