GAL the First: Gentle On My Mind



Over the weekend was a baby shower for one of my friends, and I finished my first GAL project for the incoming little guy. I debated what I should knit for a couple of weeks, and I'm so glad that I decided on Gentle on My Mind by Lee Meredith. It's modeled here by Skelly, because I don't really have a lot of things that are newborn-head sized, and Skelly is a good sport.


This hat has such an interesting construction, and it really challenged and entertained me. I was super confused for a while at the beginning, but I decided to just trust the instructions and follow them line by line, and of course it worked out perfectly.

I used some Knit Picks Swish that I had in my leftovers bin- this is probably going to be a January baby, so he needs a wool hat, and it's superwash in case it gets thrown in the laundry due to mom/dad brain.
