Mum is a hot person. By that I mean she doesn’t feel the cold that much, but finds hot weather uncomforable. Unfortunately, this means she doesn’t wear much knitwear. She’s always very resistant to me making her anything. Not even socks.
But she does like hats – preferrably made of cool fibres like cotton. Last year I tried out the sunhat pattern in Yarn magazine, using some leftover navy cotton, and decided to give the resulting hat to Mum. Her response?
“I’d like another one, please. In black.”
