    My latest preemie hats

    My new DGS is still in the NICU and was given a name that means regal lion. So I knit him a hat with a lion's face and a tail that sticks out the back. And of course everyone needs a St.Patty's day hat . The lion hat is more purple and the other is more orange and dk.green than the pics show.

    adorable hats, hoping he's home soon.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    These are awesome, I tried to knit when I was younger and could never get the hang of it, but you are great at it.

    thanks for asking. i used to knit hundreds of preemie hats when i lived in south florida. i designed these hats back then... all original designs. actually, i designed the lion's head last week when i learned the meaning of his name.

    I love your hats all the more because I hate to knit. I am glad others are wlling to though. I would like to know what you are using for a backdrop though. Can I see a full picture of it? I am intrigued by the design and would like to use part of the design as inspiration, in appliqué or quilting. Is it a box of some kind?
