When I saw the pattern for this hat in my book I knew that I just had to make it. Originally it didn't have a potential owner- just a project to do 'cos I wanted to. However, Mum walked in on me knitting the other day and said she wanted it. (Mum wasn't wearing her glasses at the time and thought it was a mouse!) Now it is finished it does look good on Mum (even if she doesn't think so!). I am assured that it will be worn when they go on holiday to Canada at the end of the year (where it will be cold).
