For every head, a hat
We have come to visit my parents by the seaside for half term. The weather is absolutely perfect - more like April than March, so we headed off to the beach for a bit of messing about by the water. When we've been before the tide has been out but today we timed it just right, and one lunatic even went paddling.
Fired with enthusiasm by the making (and wearing) of my cable hat I have been busy kitting out the rest of the family. First came this watchman's hat (first seen here) for my lovely tall hubby to keep his brain nice and warm; the pattern couldn't have been simpler but all that ribbing took AGES.
He says it is very warm, and I was pleased to be able to make something for him - he does put up with an awful lot of girly pink stuff. Speaking of which:
A small pink version of mummy's hat for a small pink person. In fact this hat is a bit tight for her so it will end up being for Tiny Small, and I've already cast on for a rather looser version that should be ready for next winter at the very least.
It really was a perfect morning!
