This purple hat marks a historic event. My dear Kevin asked specifically for a knitted item. He picked the yarn, Malabrigo Rios, for its combination of superwash and softness. Also, it is his color and, every time that we have received it in an order at AFY, I have thought of him. He plans to wear it when fishing so that means he will wear it lots.
Later, I will add a picture of his wearing it.
