Small Breather for Small Hats

I'm pretty project-monogamous, but sometimes a break from the usual is most welcome.  A Quidditch deadline is looming (which is hilarious to me) and I've switched gears from fancy fussiness to some free! preemie hats:
on the left: Basic Baby Hat [Rav] by Heather Tucker; 
on the right: Preemie beanie [Rav] by Lyn Rowley.  
Both knit with a quarter-skein each of (discontinued) Debbie Bliss Cathay in colorways 12025 Beige and 12014 Green

These are two of an eventual five, for a cool 15 points apiece: quick, stashbusting, and ready to donate to my local neonatal unit.

AND for the curious: sitting on pause, at 49.11%:

I love doing preemie hats when I need a quick finish or to distract from boring projects. Love the striping on yours. Will have to bookmark those patterns for future use.
