Yay, my Reddit recipient got her hat… and it fits! I rarely keep the stuff I knit (unless there’s something wrong with it), because I love to give the stuff away. Especially to people who like what I’ve made, and appreciate the fact that I MADE it instead of buying it for them. In this case, she specified the color and I made it up from there. I think it came out pretty cute!
And here it is on her cute little head! I’m so happy she likes it — when I make something with my own hands, and give it away, it’s so much better that the recipient likes it than if I’d run out to Target and bought something to gift. (Because, also, I can’t leave Target with less than $100 spent any day, any time.)
