Warm Heads, Warm Hearts

I love it when a plan comes together. I just finished knitting this darling hat from the latest VOGUEknitting magazine.

Here's another view of the hat laid out. You can really see the cable / leaf pattern.

Next to it is the Aviatrix hat I knit for a brand new great-nephew Wesley Cache. He's my baby brother's first grandchild. The newest Grandma and Grandpa Crandall are 'over-the-top' in love with this child!!

I love the hats! I bought that issue of VK because I liked the hats and thought one might be do-able for me. No time for complicated sweaters.

Your samplers are beautiful as well.

Oh my gosh, I didn't know you could knit! I can "knit one purl two" (I think anyway), it's been about 25 years since I tried knitting. I wish I had a good teacher to show me the ropes, too bad you don't live closer, I would love to be your student! Love both hats, but really like the baby blue one, it's way too cute! Maybe I will have to hire you to make me one for a gift if you're interested......
