Happiness is a green hat

Being from Florida, Kara doesn’t own many woolly things – especially not hats, scarves or gloves. She mentioned she was looking for a snugly woolly hat and of course I had to show off about my knitting. I took my beanie pattern book into work to see if there was one she liked then set about finding some wool. Not so easy here! Shops are not in the city, they seem to be little specialty shops out in the burbs. However, it seems that Patons, a wool I used in New Zealand a lot, could be ordered online here. I picked what I hoped was a good green – she loves green … I didn’t tell her I was making it.

Green hat for Kara

I gave it to her this morning. She opened it and grabbed it and said something like “Holy crap, I’m I’m speechless, I thought if I was lucky I might get something by next winter. I love it. Holy crap. Best. Monday. Ever.” I was happy! And so was she – it was put on straight away!

New hat worn all day!

And didn’t take it off for the rest of the day 🙂
