When Marvin saw the hat I knit for Norris, he said he wanted one just like it. "Just like it," I wondered, "the same shape, the same texture, the same color?" NO! Not the same color!
Marvin needed a KU Blue hat. This blue was the closest I found in an easy-care worsted weight. Marvin's hat is a slight improvement on the earlier model, for which I was short of yarn. There's more room in the crown.
I mailed the hat off last week - it arrived on Friday when Marla and Marvin were getting ready to leave on vacation. They went to the beach in Florida. I don't think Marvin needs the hat there - and this winter is probably over in Chattanooga. But he'll have it for any chilly weather next year. Rock-Chalk-Jayhawk!
