Itty Bitty Birthday Hat

Henry's first birthday is a week from Monday, and his party is on Saturday. I've been working on the birthday cake hat from Itty Bitty Hats all this week in preparation. After months of doing Mason-Dixon Knitting with the cheapest yarn there is, I thought I was over my yarn snobbery, but no, this project has brought it back in full force. Instead of using RYC Cashsoft as the pattern calls for (which Knit One didn't have in the right colors, as usual, and it was too late to order online), I've substituted a Bernat yarn. Ick. It squeaks! It sticks to the needles! I'm violating my rule of life is too short and there are too many lovely things to knit to use yucky yarn, but I figure this hat is a one-time only deal. It will look adorable, and that's what counts.

My vote is yucky yarn is ok for a one day a year knit item. Especially if it will be in close proximity to icing :o) I am not familiar with the pattern, but look forward to seeing the finished product!
