Our unbelievably awesome, resourceful and she-who-always-has-candy secretary, Deb was very enamored by my new hat of a few posts ago. So much so, that she begged me to make her one if she bought the yarn. Of course, since Deb is so awesome that she makes everything work here in crazy-rules-academia land that I said yes immediately. Plus, I couldn’t wait to see Pippi worked up in another new color combo.
When I enquired as to what colors Deb might like, she said “Oh, exactly like yours, they’re just perfect!”. I was quite flattered that I apparently picked such an awesome color combo, but I was a tiny bit let down at first. Then I started knitting. And then I was happy all over again. I love faire isle. I love that I learned to knit with one color in each hand. I love how methodic it feels. I love how fast it seems to go. I love how the crocheted edging on this one looks so much better than on the last one. I love it all so much that I was obsessed with knitting a hat completely identical to one I had just knit.
But to top it all off, I love how happy Deb looks in her new hat!
