A very good friend of a very good friend is currently undergoing chemotherapy, and I’m not sure what else to really do to help, so I knit her a hat.
But not any hat! A one of a kind, super soft, purple and black bat hat!
I used the numbers and shaping from Slouchy Cat Hat by Marna Gilligan from her book Cat Knits. The charts are ‘winged’!
Apologies for the photo quality, I literally finished casting off and weaving in the ends at work and dropped it off to her on the way to run some errands before going home.
I’ve been told it fits perfect and she’s very happy, and especially giving the current cold snap, it’s been more than needed!
Thats all this week – it’s been a busy one, overtime at work, visiting friends, a belated leaving do for a number of us from the last place and poor Engel was roped into helping a guy from my new workplace fit heated grips onto his motorbike.
(I have promised him a special treat and an IOU, so don’t worry!)
