I'm going to try again this year to knit Jack an acceptable winter hat. (Remember last year's ill-received Pippi Longstocking look?)
I asked my sister if I could make it lavender because I have tons of Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino yarn in that color (an abandoned sweater project for Nora), but she said no.
Boys can wear lavender, so I don't understand why. But anyway, now I'm making it brown.
Brown is so boring.
I have two balls of brown Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran (an abandoned Teddy Bear project—I don't finish many things), so I hope it will be enough.
Maybe I can put lavender trim on it.
