A Totally Funny Knitting Story

Cate came home from college this weekend and we ran some errands together yesterday. We had to stop at the LYS because I needed some circular needles for the sweater. Cate wondered over to the big basket of hats that the LYS proprietor is collecting for charity and she started to sort through them (about 25 or so hats) and she pulled one out and said, "Look at this one, I really like this." Turns out it was the Coronet hat I made (photo below) and put in the basket last week. She never saw the hat and didn't even know I made one! I'm thinking I must have raised kids to recognize a good Irish wool and nice cable pattern when they see one!!! We had a good laugh over that one!
