Every year I do a Christmas tea for my daughter in law, her mother, and her friends and myself. It’s super fun, and this year we had tea at Debbie Macomber’s Victorian Tea Room! I always have a gift for everyone because it’s at Christmas time and that’s what you do at Christmas, you give gifts. I got all the girls autographed books of Debbie’s, but Kaia’s only 21 months old – she can’t read. So, I knit her a winter hat. The hat is called Little Sophia’s Hat designed by Sheila Joynes that actually works and manages Debbie’s yarn shop A Good Yarn, named after her book with the same name.
I took a fair isle class with Carmel, the gal who runs our Ravelry group. I fell in love with this hat. I had a couple of left over skeins of some Hazel Knits DK Lively, but needed 3 more colors, and this is what you see. The colors go like this:
purple – Violetta orange – High Octang blue – cornflower red – Vamp Lt purple – Haze
It was a super fun knit, my first picot edge treatment. It’s a little big on her, but she’ll grow into it!
