So Easy!

Sometimes a knitting project is so easy, so obvious, it just flies off the needles.
My friends Jamie and Curtis just had a baby which they named ...... Daisy!
Well, of course, I had to knit a Daisy hat!


I have to admit that I was inspired by Blue Blog's flower hat, but since I didn't have the Itty Bitty book she used, I improvised.

Pattern specs:
Hat: based on the hat in Last Minute Knitted Gifts (baby size), but made a no-sew picot hem because I thought it would be more flower-like.
Flower: from Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments.
Yarn: Paton's Grace in yellow, about half a ball, and oddments of white Merino Grignasco.
Needle: US 2 for hat, US 4 for flower.
Started: March 31st.
Finished: March 31st.

This success was offset by an annoying realization: the Blum shawl is not coming out triangular. And I thought I could simply follow the chart and disregard the japanese instructions... I am not ripping this out, and I'm thinking of adding little triangles on the side. What do you think?
