A few years ago my grandmother asked me to knit her a hat, and so I made her a Coronet. She loved it and apparently all her friends complimented her on her lovely hat. I do like a successful gift knit! Anyway, the hat is starting to wear out, and she has asked me for another one. This time in red. Bright red. I thought about changing up the cable pattern, but it turns out she wants the same thing. Who am I to ignore a specific request?
It is indeed BRIGHT red. The yarn is Cascade 220, ordered off the internet, so I wasn't quite sure what colour I was getting... but there it is. It is brighter than it looks on my screen, and not at all pink. I think it is perfect, but hopefully Grandma agrees.
I'm not knitting this as quickly as I'd like, because I am also working hard on my November sweater - more on that later. The cable band is the most time-consuming part, though, so once I get that done it should proceed quickly.
