I guess waking at 4 in the morning and not being able to fall back asleep has its advantages . . . I got up, stoked the fire, made my morning latte, sat down and finished her hat.
I've included this picture of my hat because I think you may be able to see the pattern better in the light color. It was an enjoyable pattern to knit. Once I got past the second cable twist, I didn't have to keep my eyes glued to the instructions; I could tell where I was by just looking at my work.
If any of you are interested, the pattern is in Charlene Schurch's book, 'Hats On!'
