Jack's Hat

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.

Brown.

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.
