I happened to see on Karen's blog and Tracey's blog that our another dear blogging friend Anke was in need. Well, she wasn't in need, but a good friend of her's is. It seems she has cancer and Anke thought it would be wonderful to get some hats over to her.
So as any knitter would, I dug into the stash and cast on a hat. A Gnome Dome to be exact.
I thought this whimsical little hat might cheer her up around the holidays. But I gotta tell ya - red is a killer to photograph!
I love the little point at the top!
It took no time at all. I literally cast it on before I went to spinning group on Wednesday and went home with a finished hat 2 hours later. That easy.
So if you find yourself with some time and a bit of spare stash (and what knitter doesn't have stash) go ahead and knit a hat.
