When I originally signed up for Zimmermania, I immediately thought I'd do the Baby Surprise sweater. But I'm in the process of finishing up a baby sweater now and I need a break. So now I'm trying to think of what to knit. The snail hat is very cool and would be fun to make for the boys. Any other good hat suggestions? Mittens? Pattern ideas for a busy mom who already has way too much on the needles?


  • The snail hat was fun and easy to make--it's 2.5 sts to the inch so it went by so quick. I'd definitely recomend on if you've got some extra stash yarn lying around.

  • Thanks! Think I'll try it out.

  • You mentioned that you're a mom. If your kids are little, I second the snail hat. I did one in tan for the garter stitch bottom and white for the spiral, and it looks just like a soft-serve ice cream cone! I used the version of the pattern in The Opinionated Kitter, which has three spiralling sections.
