Sophie's Amazing Reversable Hat
Sophie found a cross stitch pattern of a unicorn and acorns that inspired her to create a pattern for a reversible hat. The hat has rain drops down the front, so in that way it is really a Vancouver hat. She wore it when we went shopping it Chinatown last week and really excited old lady who was selling crocheted hats. She waved her arms, smiled and yelled "Hat, hat, hat!!!." Sophie smiled too, it is nice to have recognition from a fellow traveller.
Sophie and I visited my friend Carmen of Melonhead Knitwear. Carmen showed Sophie and I all her wonderful knitting stuff and Sophie came home with a batt of many colours. Carmen's hats are truly word of art, many are like wearing a little poem on your head.
