It's been a hat year. I already showed off the shark hat (which came out really nice). Then I started working on the Amstel Hat. I liked it. But about halfway through it, I knew it wasn't going to work for its intended recipient. It just wasn't her.
So, all subtle at Thanksgiving, I asked my niece if she wanted me to knit her something this year. It's not exactly her color, but it's more her style. But she's not interested. She'd rather have...books. Gasp.
(Okay, books are good. I'm glad she's a voracious reader. But come on! Who wouldn't want me to knit for them?)
So, I've got this lovely hat. It's finished. And I don't have a soul to give it to.
(I suppose I could keep it for myself, but it's not really my color.)
