    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.

    He is one of three beautiful babies all under the age of 3. Big sister is so funny about the quilts I have made for them! If her brother takes hers she tells him no and gets his for him. She even brings the new baby his and tells him to snuggle up! They are all so precious and I love them dearly.
