For a lovely, wonderful, can't say enough good things about her, friend...

So, I met this lady online several years ago.  We were both pregnant (with our now-6 year olds).  It was my second baby and her first.  I've had one more baby and she's now cooking her third and due any day now!  I'm so excited to see what this baby looks like since all of her babies are THE most adorable little things in the world!  She did the 3-D ultrasound done and THOSE CHEEKS!  They make me smile so much and also regret not getting that done with mine.  When I saw those baby cheeks in the u/s, I decided that I just had to make something for the baby.  I wanted to make a complete layette set but I didn't have enough time (let alone the skill) so I set out to make a hat and a bonnet.  I used this pattern and some regular ol' acrylic yarn.  I would have liked to have used a nicer yarn but it wouldn't have gotten here in time.  ;)

For the bonnet, I used this pattern because I needed to get it done 'super quick'.  Same yarn but I made some cute little flowers to go around where the ties would be.  I do NOT feel comfortable with hats that tie for a baby.  I sometimes can't believe that so many people use them but they wig me out big-time.  It just seems to be a horrible, horrible accident waiting to happen...  Needless to say, I left the ties off.  ;)

There they are!  I made them with a ton of love.  This is a friend who just makes my day every time I talk to her.  I think if I could move close to any one of my friends, I would have to plant myself right next door to her, if not right in her living room.  LOL

ETA:  She had her baby TODAY on 8-9-10!!!  9 pounds 6 ounces and GORGEOUS!
