Robin's Egg Blue (pink/brown) Hat

It was about a year ago that I made the Robin's Egg Blue Hat and I just realized that I never showed it to you or put it in my Ravelry notebook...
...I finished it last January and I wear it quite a bit - Scout snapped a couple of pictures of me as I was coming back from walking the dog - he just loves the camera...

...so the story about the hat...
...I had a brown jacket...
...for some reason Scout and his Papa bought me (a knitter) a handknit scarf that they saw at a Bazaar - I'm guessing because it was brown (and pink) to go with my jacket - very sweet of them...
...so, the scarf was not knit by me - but it is very soft and warm - and I needed a hat to go with it...
...I found some bright pink yarn and some brown (both Caron Simply Soft) that sort of matched the scarf and I found Rachel's pattern for the robins egg blue hat and then I made some knitting needles - and knit the hat - it was a quick knit and I'm sorry I didn't show it to you sooner...
(note there's just a tiny scab on my nose from the Christmas Tree injury)

  1. The most important thing about a winter hat is that it covers the ears - this hat looks very good and fullfills the requirement.

    Glad the facial injury is getting better.

  13. The hat is so lovely! You look very peaceful after your walk too! I've had that hat in my queue on Ravelry for I don't know how long, between this and Shalom I am starting to see I need to get busy with more knitting again!
