On a recent walk around the block with Jake the dog, Elly complimented the headband I was wearing. It looks similar to the one found here. And perhaps because she knows I can and do occasionally knit, she asked if I had made it. I hadn’t though; it was a gift.
Elly continued to admire my headband, especially the flower on it. It was beautiful. What’s more; it would look beautiful on her.
Rather than ask me to give her the one on my head or ask me to buy her one just like it, she asked if I could knit her a hat with a flower on it. I said yes immediately.
It took me about a month to knit it. I sewed the flower on Christmas Eve – just in time to wrap it and put it under the tree.

May she always believe that any pretty hat she takes a liking to can be knit by Mom.
