Odessa



Now I know this is a rubbish picture, that bears little resemblance to the Odessas you've admired on Ravelry, but this is what I ended up making for Mary. She's in hospital and wanted something that she can comfortably lie in bed wearing that isn't an itchy wig or an outside looking hat. I wanted to make it stripey, but didn't bargain on the slanted pattern making the stripes look a bit like checks. I do like the pattern for this hat, by Grumperina, and it was a quick and easy knit. I'm sewing the ends up tonight and I'll see if I can get a better picture. Then I'm back to the BTSV, pictures of that soon as well.

It looks lovely and soft, and I think the stripes look kinda cool.
