This is not a joke! I said I would knit a hat on the train journey from Bath to Edinburgh and that is exactly what I did. I finished with a good two hours to spare and the hat came in handy immediately, as you can see. It was a bit chilly o the first two days, but all in all I have never been in Edinburgh at a milder time than this year, so I am certainly not complaining.
I did make a mistake after frogging the decreases, which you can see in the first photo. I failed to use a strand of yarn when picking up my stitches! Oops. Now there is a lonely strand running across one rib. I shall think of it as a design feature.
