A first time patterned hat that I made. Someone had started this project and after the first few rows gave up and passed it on. fortunately with a picture of the finished hat and a pattern to follow. I can't believe it worked! I am so proud of it and my friend Tina gets it for her bday. (I was actually knitting it at the birthday party and made her try on the half-made hat to see if it fit. Fortunately, she's a good sport!) All in all, I was happy with the results and now will try another. For her party I also made a flourless chocolate cake, so rich that a small sliver is plenty. Here's the photo: My two loves: Baking and Knitting!
