A couple of months ago Elise mentioned she doesn't have a hat that she loves, so I had it in the back of my mind to knit her a hat. When Kate mentioned she had designed a hat, I knew, sight unseen, that I was going to knit it for Elise. I knit the hat, took it off the needles and thought "oh dear". Well, actually what I thought was "crap, how am I going to tell Kate... this hat looks odd". Which it did, but then I tried it on and it's great. It fits better than any hat I've made for myself recently, the design is pretty and clever and a good quick knit. And there are fishies swimming round and round the brim! Also, I think it looks brilliant on Elise, don't you?
