I have started knitting a red and white striped baby hat to resemble Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat. It won't look exactly the same, since it's not going to be a top hat, but rather a hat that's just knit in stockinette stitch, so the edge will roll. The downside is that I'm knitting it with acrylic; I think the recipient won't want a hat that she has to hand wash, and I had trouble finding a white the color I wanted in super wash wool.
What are you reading or knitting?
