    Blessed and a new request for me

    On December 30, 2011 at 9:46 a.m. I was blessed with another nephew. When I visited my DSIL and him she had Eli snuggled in the quilt I made him. It melted my heart! My DBIL asked me if I could make baby Eli some beanies for his cute little head. Eli was born 5 weeks early, however the premie beanies were too small and the newborn beanies were too big. After scouring the internet for free patterns, I came up with these. My first try I made 7, all but one were too small. I increased the size and made another it was a little too big but if cuffed it fit. They are made out of old sweaters that are too big for my DH and me. My DSIL loves them and since I have made two more! I learned to make a trial for fit and then make more. I was so excited how easy these were I couldn't stop making them. I am going to donate the ones that didn't fit Eli to the local hospital's NICU.

    What a cute little guy, and not only is his head warm, but so is your heart for having fulfilled his need.
