You know those pretty little holiday cards my friend Sandra made me? Well, they were half of a much anticipated exchange we concocted. Forever ago, maybe last spring, Sandra asked if I would knit her the ultimate winter hat. She had something quite specific in mind.
I started scouring the web looking for patterns. With a hat like this, there's not much selection. On my third attempt I felt happy enough to finish the hat through.
I smooshed it in a box (with a few other goodies from Redbird Studio) and sent it on it's way to Germany.
I didn't know Sandra would look so good with a beard. (She's amazing at everything, I should have realized.)
