1. Honegart – I adored knitting this hat, which is a present for my oldest child’s 21st birthday. It still needs a crochet edging along the bottom.
2. Orchids and Fairy Lights – Bobbles and cashmere. Cashmere and bobbles. I like everything about this hat, except, possibly, the fact that it is clearly going to be so cute that only my beautiful daughter will be worthy of wearing it and I will have to relinquish it to her.
Two superlatively fun patterns to knit. This is probably as good as it gets for travel knitting and although I’m itching to get back home and to finish knitting the kids sweaters that are waiting for me there, I’m definitely enjoying the hat interlude.
