My friend Fran texted me this evening with a picture message to show off her newly finished hat. I think it's absolutely gorgeous! I just love the colors! She used Mary Maxim's Prism yarn which I've been meaning to try out. She created it with a simple k2p2 basket weave pattern for the bottom portion of the hat. I may have to run out and get some of this Prism yarn and knit up one of these colorful hats myself! When I received her text and saw this photo I just had to smile! This hat makes me feel happy!
