Kind of Productive

I live in a very peaceful neighborhood. When we first moved into our house eighteen years ago, there were lots of kids around, so it makes sense that it's very quiet new since all of those kids, including mine, have grown up and "flown the coup." Last year, a young couple moved in a couple of houses down from us. They got to work on their house right away, updating, and working in the yard on weekends, so, of course, I instantly liked them since I approve of hard workers. Last Christmas they gave us some delicious homemade jam for Christmas, and I told them thank you, but never recipricated. OK, so this is a little embarrassing. They had a baby this fall, and I had never even noticed that our cute, little neighbor girl was pregnant. I am pretty sure that they had a girl, since I've seen little hints of pink when I've seen them unloading the baby from the car, etc. So, I knit a little hat for that, little anonymous baby this week. It even has hearts on it for Valentine's Day. I'm pretty sure it's too big for a fairly young baby, but, oh well. I even thought of trying to shrink it a little, but it's super wash wool, so shrinking, unfortunately, isn't going to work. It's all good though. Someday, this cap will fit our little neighbor baby, who I hope is a girl, or, at least, a boy who doesn't mind a wearing a feminine little cap.

Those young neighbors will be delighted. And it will give you a chance to meet the neighborhood baby.

What a cute hat! I put the pattern in my queue, since I have some superwash sport that is just begging to be this hat!
