I love to ice skate. Some of the best times of my life have been spent at the skating rink, so when I saw this pattern for a skating bonnet, I knew I would have to knit it. This is truly a quick knit that can be made up in a weekend. What I love about it, is that it's snug around the ears. Did you know that I'm a medical miracle? When I was fifteen I contracted the German measles and my eardrums burst because of the infection. Most people that this happens to die, but not me. Though it was quite touch and go for weeks and as a result I'm profoundly deaf. My deafness has been somewhat corrected with high power hearing aids so that is why I need a snug fitting hat to wear outside when the wind blows. The wind really wreaks havoc with hearing aids. My eardrums are quite fascinating to every doctor I've ever come in contact with. How many people can say they have fascinating eardrums? I think I'll leave them to science!
So there you have it. If you'd like the pattern, just e-mail me.
