My niece asked for a purple hat. "same shape as last years hat". Well, the shape is easy - basic elongated beanie.
The purple was something else. I went stash diving and came up with options. So, since I had the time, I did what anyone would do. I used them all, and made three hats. (she often wears hats.)
A cotton-modal blend - with stripes because I only had the one ball of the solid.
A 100% plain purple alpaca. Yummy.
A purple, blue, black and grey patterned wool hat. Just for something different.
Now that these are done, knitting for me takes centre stage again!
