What a kick to see this, sent from my friend Daphne
Back in September, when I exhibited this show at a gallery, we had a knit night, and made up kits for the Noho Boho Hat (Rav link),
(Here's a full hat view, just for reminder.)
Anyhoo,Daphne's mom Mirjam was there. Although she'd never knit in the round, she gamely cast on a Noho Boho on the spot. And then this week I received the line up photo and this note:

Happy New Year!
My mom came to your knitting event at Kehler Liddell and with the pattern and wool that she purchased there, she knit hats for her 16 children, children's spouses, and grandchildren for Chanukah -- and a few more for friends.
We all love them! Thought you'd like to see the results of your inspiration.

Do you love it? Totally made my day.

How sweet. You never know where a simple action/exposure will have a huge ripple effect. Nice. ~ksp

How cool that she knit SIXTEEN of them. I've never made sixteen of anything in my life. You were an inspiration.

Great - I did a Noho boho for that hats and mittens pile at work. I may have forgotten to take a picture... said...

That is very cool. It is a cute hat!!

AWESOME hats!! I wore mine this morning (under my fleece hat) and still have it on now that I am huddled in my office.

Makes me wonder why I even bother to comb my hair in the mornings...

I know you are busy, but just wanted you to know that I have an award for you on my blog.

I recently purchased your book - LOVE IT - am wondering why it took me so long to buy it? I added a review on Amazon, too. Thanks for the inspiration!
