I'm also starting to run out of yarn. I had filled half of my little backpack with yarn, and now it's all been knitted. And since I make a lot of baby hats, these never take the whole skein, so I was left with a lot of leftovers. Not enough for a big hat, and too much for just a pair of baby booties. The solution? Newborn beanies! They really don't take a lot of yarn and it gave me the opportunity to experiment with different eyelet patterns. Anyway, here are some photos!
This one is actually the same as the blue beanie from this post. I didn't like the first version, it was too short and too wide, so I entirely re-did it, with a new eyelet pattern! I like this one much better.
This one isn't a newborn beanie. I had barely enough yarn left for one mitten, so I made a teeny beanie. I probably fits on a 8-9 inch doll
Here it is next to the newborn size one.
