Apparently the word traveled through the British group on board that I had gifted one of the members with a hat. Today it was Tony informing me that he really needed a hat. Without having much hair anymore, his head was going to get cold.
Now, I have known Tony and his wife Jackie for about three years, first becoming acquainted on the Independence of the Seas in Nov of 2012. And Tony doesn’t exactly have a whole head of hair anymore, being a few years older than me.
So I took this hat
(which happens to look exactly like the one which landed on Egbert’s head and the one currently on the needles) and handed it to him this morning.
yarn – Schoppel Zauberball fingering weight. size 2.25 mm needles. 156 stitches in 2×2 rib. top finished off in 6 section version of the Exeter Hat.
Beautiful. I love it. Thank you for taking good care of his head!
Nice hat! (I am busy making cotton sun hats at present – rather different from that cosy looking item!)
