Pinkie's Wing Hat
Well, I keep starting up knitting projects to take with me on the cruise a week from today, but I keep finishing them! Here is another one. A hat for my best friend for her bday. The yarn is sport weight Bernat Satin in lavender, another stash yarn I had. I found the pattern in my folder full of printed patterns so am not sure where I got it. I just know it isn't pink!

What a wonderful thing to do: finishing lots of projects.
Lovely little hat and in a good strong color.
Enjoy the cruise. (I could lend you some projects to take with you if you run out.)

That is a really cute hat, I'm sure your friend will love it. A really great gift!

After you get done with salmonmac's projects you can have a few of mine!

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

That's a nice little hat nonny, and the color is divine. Have fun on your cruise, even with yet another FO under your belt. Maybe there's a LYS in one of your ports of call?

Yay! So Sunday you push off, then? The hat is very pretty.

Hmm....how about if you just start a number of projects so that you can take some with you? I'm guessing that once you start a project you find it difficult to put down.

Where are you going on your cruise?

We are doing a western Caribbean and our port calls are Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica, Cozumel, Mexico and George Town, Grand Cayman. We are super excited.
Thanks for the nice comment

I love the luster of this yarn! It's a real nice pairing with this hat pattern, too! Great work!
