Cat designed this hat for her dear friend, Deb. Many of you know her as the talented caterer at Cat’s retreats. Deb brought me the hats and claims it is easily her favorite and she wears it all Fall and Winter.
Truth be told, we all need to wear a crown sometimes, right? Perhaps it is a birthday, a victory at work, getting a grandchild to nap or a pick-me-up for a friend who needs it.
Of course, Cat made three different variations, but the first one has a fun little story and I reached out to her knitters to see if we could capture it and thanks to Maureen, now we know!

Caretaker of Cat’s Legacy
I’m pretty sure every one of Cat’s San Juan Island retreats were magic. April 2013 was the first retreat of the year at Lakedale. It dared to rain as the “the kindness of knitters” (as Cat called us) gathered from all over the country. We came to de-stress, learn, share and experiment while working on felfs, phone pouches and tea cozies. There was also a visit from the local fox, an Island Fibers popup shop, quiet times, lots of laughter and stories from Cat and Jim P, wine, and even some sunshine. But everyone was always happy to drop everything when Deb Nolan served her fabulous meals. The Catering Queen needed a crown! Cat started the hat. The attendees were invited to add a couple of rows.
