My niece Olivia’s birthday is on the 28th of this month. I asked her what she would like and she said that she would like another hat. I had gifted her the Mating Deer hat I made during chemo but it was too small for her rather large noggin. This time, I have her actual measurement (24″!) in hand and I’m now better equipped to make her a hat that fits.
I just started Wurm but it’s been a fun knit so far. I actually had planned on knitting her this very pattern for Christmas while in treatment but by that point, doing anything more complicated than stockinette was out of the question for my chemo brain. The yarn is a wonderful yellow green from madelinetosh’s pashmina line. The colorway is suitably named, Olivia.
I rarely knit as a gift but she is quite knit worthy and I am honored she asked for a hat. Or a Pokemon. She might get a Pokemon for Christmas. Maybe.
