The pattern was Thomasina by Marie Wallin in Rowan The Milk Cotton Collection. The pattern calls for 7 balls of milk cotton DK but I used Sirdar Snuggly DK and it only took 4 1/2 balls. The yarn is really soft and great to knit with. The cabling wasn't too demanding once I had colour-coded the charts, but by the end of it I did say I didn't want to see another cable for a while. A nice plain stocking stitch is what is needed now.
Here is Grace in her crocheted hat. She wore it last night to go for a meal with her friends. When she told them she made it herself they told her to get a life - some people just don't understand!
