Henry's Hat

This year so far has brought our family some unexpected challenges with health and the accompanying worry and stress that tags along like an unwanted guest.

But we are getting by with the support of our family, friends, and lots of food.

And I am personally getting through it one project at a time. Quick, fun-to-knit, happy little projects for myself and for my kids. I seem to get more and more productive the more stress I am under. The act of making new things is very calming.

My latest finished knit was this sweet little hat for my son. 

This is the pattern Henry's Hat, from the story by Joanna Johnson featured in Episode 97 of my podcast.

We have enjoyed this story over and over again, and having a hat to match Henry's in the story makes it even more fun to read.  

I wrapped up this hat to give as a gift to my son, and when he first saw it, he immediately recognized it from the book. 

 I knit this hat from a stashed skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the most fitting color of green. I love how it turned out and how well it fits!

The pattern is available HERE. The book is available HERE.

Now I'm off to continue knitting my worries away...

More project updates coming soon!
