Tuesday Treat

Here's a photo of my new little grandson with the cocoon I made for him and a matching hat.

Patric Gilles, born March 22nd and weighing 7.0 lbs.




Here's what I have been up to creatively. I am making more baby hats to donate to a hospital. The one on the right is the one I am donating and the one on the left is a close-up of the one in the previous photo. There are so many great free patterns on the internet. The leaves are crocheted. I used the same basic pattern as the leaves on the cocoon but I just used a couple less stitches to make them a bit smaller.


This is the matinee jacket I made. Newborn size, for little Patric.

  1. Dolores, beautiful, and you can be so proud of the little fellow. A friend of mine is also knitting "beanies" for newborns, premmies, and her niece is knitting for stillborn babies. Made with love. Greetings from Jean

  7. Gorgeous baby and knitting! I love that green, so refreshing from the usual baby blues and pinks.

  8. I'm glad you put a photo of the little guy in his cocoon. To be honest, when you posted the first picture, I didn't know what a cocoon was, and I thought you had made a terrible measuring error in making some kind of hat! Now that I know what it is, I can say that it looks great!

  10. Hello Dolores,

    Oh so cute, you just want to pick him up and cuddle him. Google Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the cocoon and your grandie remind me of them.

    Happy days.
    Bev.
