At 85 years old, most every day for almost three years now, my mother has driven nearly an hour each way over rough, winding, often-icy, upstate roads. Her mission? To spend as much precious time as possible trying to eek smiles out of my dear, dying father. If anyone ever deserved a pretty, soft, comforting Christmas gift to tell her that she’s loved, well, she’s the one.
She just received her “Gentle Hat“. She called to say “I love it!” I’m one happy knitter. 🙂
Merry Christmas to all!
Gentle Hat, modeled by the designer. It uses seven different shades of Dale Alpakka, available through the designer’s online yarn shop, Kidsknits.com. If you get a 2nd ball of off-white (total of 8 balls) you’ll be able to knit three identical Gentle Hats.
