Miriam's winter hat from last year met an unfortunate demise in an incident involving a hungry cat. We don't talk about it much.
Her new hat had a rough start. I first cast on with a green yarn, but then realized it would just make her look jaundiced, so I ripped it out. I decided to use a natural colored yarn and figure out a color later, since I could also dye a natural yarn. This yarn is a natural oatmeal color, and while knitting, I was really disappointed with it.
Until it was done! Now I absolutely love it, and she does as well!
Unfortunately, it's now 80ºF outside, and no one really needs a hat just yet...
