A Bold Bonnet

Hooray!!  Another finished project for 2010.  And another hand knit for the baby :)  I call it her bold bonnet.
This is the Modern Baby Bonnet from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies by Hadley Fierlinger.  I used Knit Picks' City Tweed DK in Morning Glory with size 6 needles.  This is the first time I've used this yarn, and I really liked it.  It's very soft, and the color is beautiful - perfect for baby's little head!  So far I've set her up with a blanket, a kimono sweater, a basic hat, a sweater vest, and this bold bonnet.  I'm currently working on a more intricate (for me) cardigan for her, and I've got a little cotton apron dress in the queue.  Apparently I am obsessed with knitting for this child!
