The Perfect Storm

First, I saw this post on the Yarn Harlot's blog. I loved the idea of the watermelon hat, but the warm DC weather made it a poor gift choice for anyone I know having a baby in this area. Then, came the email from a friend of my husband in Australia. He and his wife just had a baby -- and you know what season it is in Australia! Winter! A quick look in the stash revealed some kool-aid dyed wool in just the right colors. That's right -- it's a watermelon hat knit with kool-aid dyed wool. Don't you love it?! Sigh. If only one of the flavors used to dye the wool had been watermelon.
