    ISO Boob beanie, newborn size

    I thought my MIL was making me one but she's said nothign and I really want one for this baby who's due any day now. Not seeing colors I love on eBay so thought I'd try here...though I may get impatient and go ahead and buy one on there. I did check Etsy but I'm no tfeeling patient enough, I guess, most will be a couple weeks before they make it and get it here (which is perfectly reasonable, just I waited too long so hoping for faster). Don't know anywhere else to get one. Was hoping in the $10ish range and a peachy color.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I'm hoping to buy one already made so it can ship faster but that may not be possible, all I see for sale have a several day lead time so the seller can make it.

    A newborn boob beanie shouldn't take more than an hour to make. I've never made one of them, but could easily. The problem is that I don't have the right colored yarn (I'm not sure how--I have yarn stashed all over the house), and I'm in the middle of another project that I'm rushing to finish by Christmas.

    There's a CSO crafters Facebook group, although it might be private. If you search on this forum for crochet bear or elephant you'll find a thread where a bunch of us shared crochet projects. One of those people might be able to help. ETA: here: http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.p...highlight=bear

    Also...I think going the CSO route would give you better results than finding a stranger at this point. I'd never do a custom order for $10. Between the price of the yarn, buying a pattern (though I could figure that one out on my own), the time it takes to make, and shipping it, I'd likely be out money. I'd do it for a friend for that price (or free), and maybe you could find someone who whipped up a bunch at once and is selling them cheap, but handmade things are often undervalued. Sorry! Like I said, if I had the yarn I'd make one for you, but I'm pretty sure I don't.

    Yeah, the sad part is I knit, I have needles, but I don't have the right color yarn either, I don't think. I've never bought pink yarn in my life, lol, so I'm pretty sure I don't, though I might have a bit of peach somewhere. I didn't even worry about it since I thought MIL was making one but she's said nothing and I suspect she just isn't going to get to it. I'll see if I can find the group, thanks! I found a couple on eBay I'm considering. I shouldn't be so picky since I'm in a hurry, but I don't want one that's white and fuschia, lol. I'd rather have it a slightly in realistic peach or tan tones.

    I thought it was there somewhere, but maybe not. In any case, you might want to try PMing some of the people who posted in that thread in case they can help out.

    Re: ISO Boob beanie, newborn size

    I guess I'll just order on eBay--seems faster, I found those 2 auctions above that are already finished. Anyone want to share opinion on color? I know I'm overthinking this. I'm torn between the beige here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121747880013...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    and this one:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/121815743290...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    I'm very fair, if that matters :P I don't like the straight up white and bright pink ones, though. Beige seems more 'natural', no?

    Oh, those are good! And she has a few different colors though I think I like the one you linked to best. And she's not across the country from me which would speed up shipping. Thank you!
