Boy Premie Hat

I made this hat today. We were on the way to see Santa and I forgot some of my needles. I ended up using my lip liner as a double point to finish it up before we got home. I added this woven label on the hat ("fun, wild & crazy") because making the hat reminded me of when our first son was born 3 lbs. 8 oz. He was in the NICU and all we wanted was him home with us. My Mom used an orange for sizing when she knit Gavin's hats. It's hard to believe a baby can be that small (or smaller). The label is my note to the parents that soon enough their little premie will be running around being fun, wild and crazy. The days at the hospital will be a memory and he'll be eating 2 sandwiches at a time like ours does now.
