You might have been expecting a post about colonic health and a great way to add fiber to your diet, but instead you’re getting pictures of some things I knitted for my friend’s baby. Baby booties AND the glorious Chicken Viking Hat.
Both were knitted on a set of bamboo #5 double pointed needles, and with the exception of the yellow chicken feet, I managed to make the whole set with just one skein of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.
The pattern for the Chicken Viking Hat is freely available under the Creative Commons license, and I made up the pattern for the booties by combining basic patterns from Maggie Righetti’s Knitting in Plain English and Nancy Bush’s Folk Socks. Does that make it an original pattern? A mashup? Not quite sure, but the Righetti book is worth getting if you’re interested in learning how to knit.
