It's the same pattern to coordinate with the one I made in purple for Arden last fall. It's from Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson.
This time I wasn't a rusty knitter and didn't knit into the backside for the entire project like I did for Arden's. I'm supposed to say it gives it character, but we know the truth...
Hadley's is a little on the big side, but that gives it room to grow. At the rate she's growing, it's a good thing! Arden's hat still fits her a year later, so I'll get one more season of use. Plus, the coat and snow pants I bought are still fitting - go slowing growth rate!
All the hats in the book are adorable and look super quick and easy - I should have tried a different one, but I couldn't resist the matching sister hats. I'll have to get a picture of the two of them together in their upside-down daisy hats!
I have a weekly knit night on Thursday during which I should be able to finish the sweater for Arden - if my yarn comes in time. If it doesn't, I guess I'll just have to start a new project. Maybe something for me?!
