And then there were two...
Edited to add:
These are Bea Ellis traditional hats. I got the kit in the dark gray and the orange, but planned to use gray for hat A and orange for hat B, with the snowflakes in the lovely Swedish baby mohair I received from Sigrid. The kits come in lots of colors. I made the gray one for me, and the orange one for my son (he has an orange down coat). pretty much followed the very well written pattern. it comes with the cotton for the inner band. the only mods- I made the cotton band a bit deeper in the orange, and overall, a bit shorter for my son. It all falls (ha, ha, ha, probably the only place where snowflakes will fall this year in NYC...) into place in the blocking!!! Like magic. Now that my dad wants one of my "knitted items," I may send him the gray one. Problems: "but, I want to wear my cool hat mommy!" (not the one I made but...)
Thanks everybody for your kind words. I manged to knit these because I did all my shopping on line and slept very little last week...!
