I liked the hat I made for Mum so much I decided to make myself one!
Using the same pattern, which has become known in the NEV Knitting Squad as the "Boyfriend Hat" (Aren't those decreases absolutely divine?) and some utterly adorable Magic Garden Classic Prints baby yarn that essentially started dancing a little cabaret on the shelf singing "You want me, you know you want me!" when I saw it. (You know that feeling, when you see a really pretty ball or skein and you ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE IT, right?)
It is warm and bright and cheerful, the perfect pick-me-up hat for a walk to work on a cold winter's morning.
Yes, that's me at 6:30am on a chilly Saturday morning. There is a good reason why I dislike having my photo taken!
