WIP - Crochet & Loom Knitting - Baby Beanies

I've been busy over the past few days. I wanted to make at least 12 beanies to take with me on Saturday to the RS service project. I have definitely achieved that and more.

I'm not too sure about those front two beanies. They don't feel as soft as I would like them.

I snagged this at an Opp Shop on Tuesday. I've been using the yarn from the bag on the right. It's a lovely soft Moda Vera yarn. I've added an 8 ply to it when I used the Knitting Loom (see pic below) as it seemed to help with the larger holes. Not a good thing for baby beanies. Using the two threads of yarn made it much better.

I've made 15 beanies now (I made another one after I took the photo below)
I managed to make three of these purple beanies yesterday.
I hope to get a few more done today.

WIP - Crochet - Baby Beanies

The Relief Society in my ward are holding a service project next Saturday (Oct 1st). Some of the sisters will be helping to clean Old Gippstown, a small town within Moe where you can experience what Gippsland was like during the 1850's (now that it's spring there will be more tourists and activities coming up there) and other sisters will be making beanies for babies to donate to the local hospitals. You can guess which one I have decided to help with.

Here are some of the beanies I have made so far to take with me.

I chose red because who doesn't like bright colours? There is no need for pinks and blues for baby all of the time. 

Some of the patterns I have used are by Heather from Just Crochet
Heather has some lovely freebie patterns available on her website (outfits and beanies) as well as her paid ones of course.

I hope to have quite a few beanies made before next weekend. It doesn't take all that long to whip them up so I hope to have at least a dozen or so to take with me.
