This hat was one of those almost-instant gratification projects that make you glad to be a knitter.

It was made for my friend Carole, who specifically requested a beret-shaped hat in neutral shades. Look, orange is neutral in my palette, okay?

In less auspicious news, I offered to knit Ian something for christmas, and he chose a scarf. I found some lovely yarn, but realised there wouldn't be enough. No problem, 3 online yarn stores showed it in stock.
They've all now said that they don't have any, but they'll probably have it in within 3 weeks. Not really very helpful for a gift to be given in 3 weeks and 2 days, eh?
