A friend in need

P7301736

A dear friend of mine is adjusting to life with no hair, she asked me if I would knit her a hat and of course I said I would.

I had some Naturally Sensation leftover from my GarterYokeCardy - merino/angora - it's the softest thing I could find in my stash for her delicate scalp.

The yarn has a little bit of a halo so we chose this pattern and kept it simple.

I made a couple of small mods to account for a different weight yarn. I listed them here.

Today I finished it off and went to my local treasure trove thrift shop to find a button. The owner got out her "special box of buttons" to find me something just right.

I hope my friend likes it

Oooooh! The hat is SO cool - and your readers are so right - what a lucky friend you have. Seems to me that you deserve at least a free trip to the movies when the second "Twilight" movie is at the movies later this year!
