At school, several of our grad students are pregnant (or have pregnant wives/ partners).
At home, I have many, many balls of leftover sock yarn that are 50 grams or more, already gleaned for hexipuffs.
Put those two things together and what do you get? Well, eventually, you'll get lots of baby hats. Hopefully.
The plan is to knit two baby hats per pregnant person as nice gifts. Here's the first one. Recognize the yarn? It is very cute (imho) and knit up pretty quickly. I think this is for a boy baby, yes?
