Yesterday I blogged about the little scarf I was knitting from Joelle Hoverson's book "Last Minute Knitted Gifts". The reason I got this book from the library was really because I was looking for a knitted hat pattern and this happened to have a really cute one in it.

I went to the yarn store yesterday and purchased some yarn to knit a hat, which I finished this morning, by the way (did I mention I have a tendency towards OCD?).

Last night in bed I'm reading the book - yes I read pattern books - and something struck me as familiar. The book was written by the owner of Purl in New York City. Where had I heard that name before?

Lo and behold, it's the same Purl and Purl Bee that has a blog and photos on Flickr!

Too strange!

Anyway, here's the hat. Very, very cute!

Knitted with Manos del Uruguay pure wool yarn in color #113.

The beautiful model is Viola, Gavin's photographic model "girlfriend".
