The “I Miss You” Hat

I feel a little silly calling this hat the “I Miss You” Hat. But my husband, James, has been working on an important project at work that has required some long hours. And then as the project was winding down, he had a couple of (well deserved!) weekend trips. The evenings he was away for this last trip, I started this hat for him. I watched Harry Potter 7.2 and waited up for him to come home, knitting and missing him, like in some goddamn Victorian novel.

I bought the yarn a while ago (I had planned ahead, I knew it would be for a hat for him). And had this pattern in mind. I used the couple of evenings he was away as the right opportunity to put on a movie and knit.

I like knitting hats because they are straightforward and fast: knit in the round, no seaming or changing skills, just work in pattern until it’s done.

A few more nights of movie watching and I’ll have it done.
