Jack had a dentist appointment yesterday, which for me meant a chance to visit my favourite yarn shop. Purple is my granddaughter Isabel's favourite colour and this cotton is about as purple as you can get. I'm winging the top, so I hope I'm getting the size right. The stitch pattern is from the Wavy Gravy Hat by Elizabeth McNamee, though I think it's  a pretty classic feather-and-fan pattern.


  1. Ooh, I have loved the Wavy Gravy pattern ever since I first spied it in a late-night blog crawl. (I have knit a fair share of Wavy Gravy hats for charity projects, even an embellished Christmas Pudding Wavy Gravy baby hat.)

    Your cotton lace top is so very, very pretty in that purple. What a lucky granddaughter!
