While waiting for the knitting needles to start the MKAL yesterday (which never turned up and is now subject to a complaint with Amazon), I pressed on with the hat for Damon.
I started this after he tried on the Dear Hubbie hat I made for my friend Leanne. He really liked the close fit and specifically requested it not to be slouchy. I had his head measurements, his preferred colour (red) and went stash diving.
I came up with some gorgeous Cascade 220 bought for planned Christmas crafting.
The red is for the hat; with the yellow I knitted Entrechat for my stepgranddaughter.
Although I liked the pattern I found it hard to get into the swing of it. Really I could have knitted it in a day or so but it turned into my handbag project.
By the time we went to Berlin it was nearly finished:
This is the first thing I’ve made for him and it had to be something he wanted/liked in order for it to be worn.
