Congratulations Adam Childs!
I haven't been active on this board for long, but I have a "Tradition" to offer.
A little history:
A couple of friends of ours are having a new baby any day now (or perhaps not for another couple of weeks, as those things go....) I'm working on a hat/sock combo for them. The baby's a boy and the aqua/teal is one of their favorite colors.
The pattern is original (as if knitting in a circle is that original) but if you'd like it:
Needles: #2 (Can use 16" round needles but will need Double Pointed to decrease)
Yarn: Sock Weight (This is Lion Brand's Magic Stripes)
