My daughter is currently recovering from an operation. One of her friends took a day off work to help her during her first week at her home with basic needs. My daughter decided to knit her a scarf as a thank you. The pattern she chose also had a hat. As I had never knitted a hat before I said I would do that for her friend. This is my daughter's first knitting project. Quite a feat for her. It is still on the needles but over half way.
