A friend recently graduated from high school and will be heading to Western Washington University this week. And i like giving gifts (especially when they're completely unexpected), so i decided to knit her a hat.
I looked up the school colors because although i have numerous friends who have gone there, i've never known what the official colors are, and i'm kind of a stickler about that kind of thing... but there were probably 10 different (random) "official" colors listed on different sites, and really the only colors you'll find on any of the school apparel are navy, grey, black, and white. So i ditched the idea of trying to do the school logo (which is either a minimalist mountain or creepy viking), and copied one of the beanies from the online store.
She was very surprised and put it on immediately. I hope it will get a lot of use this fall/winter.
