upon my arrival in ohio from the west coast this morning, the first thing i wished for was a nice, warm hat—not only was it below 20 degrees outside, but the wind was a-blowin’. i immediately foraged in my bag for something to cover my ears, but came up wanting—i had very rightly left this slouchy, cozy confection on kim’s pretty head, where it totally belonged.
it is completely her—i’ll just have to knit another for myself. my pleasure—it will give me an opportunity to try out yet another color of our bare naked wools breakfast blend DK yarn. poor me.
not that i mind; knitting this cap was some of the best knitting fun i’ve had this winter.
you say you need something now to protects you from those sub-zero temps you’re suffering??
well, here’s your project baby—this cap knits up fast, despite the urge to stop and pet it ridiculously often.
kim said, “you are so not getting this hat back, anne”.
many thanks to my dear friend kim for doing us the honor of bringing this design to life; she’s perfect for it isn’t she? and to think she was previously convinced she couldn’t wear hats! sooo not true.
