Coronet Hat

Boating season is starting up and my knitting is going to be primarily socks, since that is the most portable and small. But in the meantime, here is a hat, Coronet Hat from, for one of my granddaughters (whoever likes the color better - I will do a second one in a different color). I used Cotton-Ease for the first time after hearing that a lot of other knitters liked it, and I have to say that I am pleased with it. It wasn't to painful for my hands to knit like some non-wool yarns, and it stood up to machine-washing and drying and still feels soft. I knit this up as a large swatch, really, to see if I liked the Cotton-Ease, and now I think that when I buy more yarn, I can safely use this. The stitch definition is quite good and there are some nice colors available.

Now, which one of the girls wants this?? Hmm.....
