Becca B in her Pink Hat

Becca B in her Pink Hat
Originally uploaded by rallaronson
Becca B read a book about a grandmother who made a knitted hat for her grandaughter. She asked if I would make one for her. I scoured ravelry and found this adorable earflap hat by Barbara Breiter. In my stash I had some Reynolds Signature that my sister gave me. It was the perfect color pink. I threw it into my carry on bag and made the hat on the plane to California. It was an easy knit and the pink yarn seemed just right.
I went out to see Becca B and her siblings yesterday. It was the first day of school for the older kids but Becca's nursery school doesn't start until next week so she and I had a nice private visit while Katie napped. You can see the hat is a success. Becca particularly liked the I-cord loop on top. She told me it's the perfect way to hang up the hat when she's not wearing it.
It was a delight to see the pleasure on her face when she tried it on and checked herself out in the mirror.

I can see your likeness in Becca's face! I can't see a bit of me in Gabe. He's all his dad.
