Learning to knit - project 2

I finished my second baby hat!

Doing this project I learned how to do a rib knit (k1, p1) and how to do a 3 needle bind off. Woo hoo!

"New Baby" has two hats now. I will make one for 3 year old Max next, then a long tail pixie hat, then one with bobbles, then the alien spaceship hat, then ...

Guess what peoples will be getting in their stocking this year?


In process yesterday morning.

Finished last night. This is closer to the true color.

I like the blue-green combo in this Betelgeuse block. 
I'd love a quilt using various colors in the blocks but I don't think 
I'm patient enough to make that many.

This is the block I've chosen for the solids hive.
It's called On the Oregon Trail. 
Sweet and simple yet bold in a two color combo.
