More obsessive Madelinetosh knitting

Since I'm pretending it's fall (I know it really is fall but our temps don't feel like it) I knit up a new fall hat.
The pattern is Crooked Paths by Melissa LaBarre and the yarn is Madelinetosh DK in Rose. This yarn is a dream and so squishy. My fingers are crossed that I'll have cause to wear it in the very near future.
Lately everyone in my life seems to be with child. I have a list a mile long of baby items to knit. One recurrent theme in baby gift knitting is the Bunny Tails hat from Itty Bitty Hats. I've knit this hat at least four times, it's uber-cute. This one went to a co-worker of Doug's and it's knit in more Madelinetosh DK, this colorway is called Wash and seems so appropriate for a little one. 
One skein of this yarn makes two 0-6 month hats. I have two more skeins of DK for baby hats, one in Milk and the other in Creme de Menthe, such perfect colors for 'surprise' gender babies.

YOu look awesome in your new hat. Now all we need are some cooler temps.

That yarn looks wonderful. I saw all the colors on their website and drooled on the keyboard.
