I also made a tiny hat for a co-worker who is due next month. I did it in the same warm chenille. I presented it to her at work and she teared up!
I also received my first order from The Loopy Ewe. I'm starting on my Panda Cotton sock. I'm going to follow a book I got, more about that later, and start a class sock of a smaller proportion to get some of the techniques down.
