Yes, I suspect there are some things you shouldn’t do to your dog!
Nonetheless, I was feeling perky about finishing a hat-on-whim. I bought-on-whim a skein of Vintage Purls’ ‘Christabella’ in max and once that soft, squishy yarn (I love max!) was in my hands, I knew that it had to be a Rose Red, a pattern I’d been wanting to knit up for a long while.
I named my hat after another fairy tale heroine, my favourite, Viola. If you’ve never read her tale, you can find it here. Who doesn’t love a seamstress who greets the Prince: “Son of the king, good day! I know more than you, hey!” And you know what? She gets no comeuppance! She stands her ground right to the end. Plus there’s a kind ogre with flatulence issues.
Rose Red really is a quite beautiful design.
