Sweet Stripes Baby Beanie

So…I have big news! 20 week old news, actually, but…I’M HAVING A BABY!!!

I am so incredibly excited to be having my 3rd baby. This is 3 babies in 3 years for me, so I’m a very busy mama. But as busy as I am, I am incredibly blessed and oh-so happy! It is impossible to explain in words how amazing being a mom is. I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

So, my husband and I don’t know whether we’re having a boy or a girl. We thought about finding out at the ultra sound, but it was way too fun not finding out with our first two, so we decided to wait.

So I decided to make a more gender neutral baby hat pattern. The stripes for this sweet baby beanie are so pretty with the soft medium weight baby yarn I used. It’s the kind of yarn you just want to touch over and over again. I’ve got a couple of skeins of pea pod left, so I’m definitely going to be making a few things. Keep checking the blog for super cute patterns!
