Instant Gratification

Between bigger projects, I like having something small and quick to do, to satisfy that urge for instant gratification. Hence the Children’s Cotton Hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson (a very nice book, but if you have the first edition, as I do, be sure to check out the errata).

Made in “Baby” size, using the specified yarn – 1 skein of Mission Falls 1824 Cotton, in color #201 (Coral). It took just over 2 hours, but after doing one, I’m sure the next one would be even faster. I think it’s darling — now someone I know just needs to have a baby. OK, so I’ve got the cart ahead of the horse. But I might as well be prepared — sooner or later, there’s bound to be a new baby in the family. Especially when I have three nieces in their 20’s.


Of course, I couldn’t resist attemping to model it on my cat… she was none too happy about it (what a surprise), and it ended up looking more like a Napoleon hat. I soothed her indignity with a little catmint out of the garden. She’s forgotten all about that silly hat already.

    I’ve been meaning to make that hat–I even have the yarn for it. Yours turned out great.
