I fancied a quick knitting project last week as a break from the intense concentration of my Rock Island Shawl. I had half a ball of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino left over from the baby blanket I made, so I decided to put it to good use. I was pretty anxious that I wouldn’t have enough yarn, but I think it’ll be okay.

I’ve been freestlyling/winging this little hat, which I think the recipient would approve of. I might even write up the pattern. I think the star decrease on the crown looks pretty good.

I think I’m going to add some little ears to the top. What do you think, panda or polar bear?
