Rose Hill Hat of my own...

Me in Budapest...

Few months back, I read through my favorite blogs and found tutorial for this awesome hat. I am not too much into knitting, but having a hat like that... I was eager to relearn. I even emailed Erin about those little dots (I call them..), so she could explain in non - knitter language, but I had to give up...
Then I went home (home as Slovakia home) and yeah, I forgot to mention that my sister is a prolific knitter. She truly is, I wish I had pictures of things she did. She did...
She hasn't been knitting for a while. No time, motivation, well and yes five little ones.
I sent her a link to Erin's tutorial and ask her if she could help me with it when I arrive. Weeelllll, we didn't find time for that until the last few days I had with her. She offered that she will make the hat for me. Great!!! Even better.
She printed it out and asked me few thing about it, since it was all in English. I went out and bought wool. I gave it to her on the last day I have seen her. The next morning, her husband was picking me up to go to the train station, then airport. Guess what he had for me... The hat. She did it in one evening.
Look, I love it!







I have gotten a news that matching scarflet and hand warmers are on its way to me.
I love you sis, thanks..

Oh, and big thanks to Erin and her great tutorial.
