That Beautiful Hat ...

My journey is the destination companion recently knitted her first hat.  She is the creature who gave me much-needed permission to squander my money on that beautiful scarf pictured in the previous post.

I loved the colours she used and so I am currently negotiating my very own woollen hat.  One with a  Miss 8 designer label.

As for the origin of the concept, 'the journey is the destination' ... I stumbled across Dan Eldon's work back when I lived in New Zealand.  His book has been traveling with me since.  I had this idea it would inspire my English students in Istanbul however the syllabus was always quite tight in the private schools where I worked.

So he simply inspires me. As does Miss 8.
