Veronica Slouch Hat from Make It! Magazine (among other places) for one teacher - minus the buttons.
Next up, the other teacher loves Harry Potter, and has been reading the books aloud. She will, of course, receive a knit inspired by the movie. From the screen via Big Knitting Trouble here is a shot of Hermione in the movie, with the knitted gift beside:
Not to be done with hats, a few more have been knit 'just in case':
The blue one is still missing the pompom (I hate making them and have procrastinated) and the other is ready to go. Both are from Knit Simple magazine, Fall 2014. The blue is supposed to have a bright orange pompom, but I can't find quite the right yarn. The gray/yellow has a leather tab in the pattern, but I substituted a massive button instead.
Finally, two cowls from the same pattern are done or in the works - Ambrosia Cowl from Make It! magazine. They will be gifted too, not sure who the recipient will be yet....
All of this to distract from a second sleeve that awaits!
