i can not tell you how much i love knitting these little pilot caps in silk. it is definitely my yarn of choice for spring. and for newborns. maybe that's because i live in texas and most of the year round it is warm here (silk can really help keep your little one cool). or maybe it's the comforting and soothing feeling i always had of putting a silk hat like these on my own baby (maya wore her silk caps constantly until she was about 2 years old). oh what a luxuriously soft and delicate yarn to put on a newborn! not to mention the benefits of warmth and temperature control this fantastic fiber has to offer.
these two hats above belong to sarah over at uniquely you photography. she's an amazing and truly gifted photographer. she had purchased a hat from my etsy shop previously and took this incredibly beautiful photo of a newborn babe wearing it! and so she wanted a few more. it was such a pleasure knitting these for her.
yours in silky goodness,
