My Knitting: #15 Red Hat for Darling Daughter

A woolly hat without a woolly ball.

I made this woolly hat using last year’s St. Mungo’s Woolly Hat Day downloadable pattern for Darling Daughter, who loves red but who was adamant that she didn’t want me to make it with a woolly ball. I think that’s a pity. I do like a woolly ball. Maybe I’ll make an optional one for her just in case. I do love this Debbie Bliss Paloma yarn. It has a very light and airy structure and is so soft to knit, but it does tangle easily.

I thought I’d also post a picture of these dinky little stitch markers recommended by Joanne from Wool and Buttons. They’re hand made in glass by women from the Mothers for All”  group in Botswana. I couldn’t resist. So pretty.
