Well, she asked me for a beanie with a difference and so I tried to deliver.
Sweet poppy is meant to be reflective of a 1920s style kind of hat and was actually meant for children. Had to make some minor adjustments for an adult sized head.
Knitted with bulky yarn, it was completed in about five days.
I'm not sure if she actually wants her face plastered all over a rather public blog, so you'll have to make do with the above pic.
Update: well, seems like she doesn't mind having her face plastered all over a blog...
