So I changed my mind and decided to make a hat for the intended recipient.
Actually for her and her mom (who is actually a friend of mine).
I chose Lace-leaf Hat by Sophy Ting. It's a free download from Ravelry (thank you Sophy!). The hat is pretty fun to knit and quick to knit up. I've already finished up the adult version that will go to my friend. And I'm more than happy with the result. That's the white one in the photo. I can't wait to finish up the purple version for her daughter. It'd be really really cute. I know we won't need knitted hats in the coming seasons but by the time I'm ready to ship everything, we'll probably be longing for colder days again (hehe) and my friend and her daughter will appreciate cozy hats, I think.
