I'm making a hat/bootie set for my mother's friend who is due in the early summer. Bernat has a new baby yarn (Baby Jacquard in Berries and Cream) that is pretty nice to work with. I decided to size it for 6 months since the winter is when the sprog will really need to wear a hat and booties. The problem is that I'm not sure if it's going to be big enough...or too big. If it's too big, that's not too much of a problem as she'll grow into it...but too small can't be fixed.
It's times like this that I wish I had the recipient around to check size. And I don't know anyone with a 6 month old lying around. Oh well.
Happy New Year.
