the lighthouse hat
When I was little girl, my father would often take me toMcDonalds for lunch. My mother wasn’t a fan of fast food, so when it was just the two of us he could indulge in a (guilt-free) Big Mac! I always got a Happy Meal, with animal crackers for ‘dessert’. After lunch, Dad would take me downtown to the lighthouse, and hold my tiny hand while we walked out onto the pier, so I could gleefully feed my animal crackers to the ducks! I still live near my hometown and, to this day, the lighthouse holds some of my sweetest memories.
The Lighthouse Hat is soft, warm, and beautiful in its simplicity, with a touch of luxury (a nod to my adult self). This delightfully fast & fuzzy hat is a joy to knit, and to wear. I hope it brings you abundant warmth and pleasure :)
