I didn't have a decent winter hat. I had a lot of scrap yarn which I couldn't use for much since it was itchy. I had Debbie Stoller Books. So, I made myself this hat based loosely on a Pattern in "Stitch 'n Bitch Nation" for a fiery hat, the name of which escapes me right now. Finished in time for my birthday and following holiday to Holland, I arrive in the pub for celebratory drinks with friends, when a guy sits down on the table next to ours wearing a shopmade, posh label hat in identical colours in almost the same order as my hat that I'd imagined up only that week! So fashionable, and I don't even know it!
