Peddock Island Beanie



This pattern summer, my boys and I decided to spend time locally doing all the things we've anted to do for a long time, but haven't because, you know, we live here. One of those things we've been talking about but never felt like taking the time to drive into the city was to visit the islands of Boston Harbor.



One of the island we took the ferry out to visit one hot summer day was Peddock Island. It's about a 45 minute ferry ride from the harbor. The island has a fort, the now defunct Fort Andrew. I don't particularly care about forts, but for some reason my husband and son love them. It must be a Y chromosome thing.








Anyway, of course I brought knitting on this trip. Originally I was just going to knit up a simple hat, something to keep my fingers busy on the ferry and while the guys oooh and aahhh over old stuff. But as we traveled across the harbor, passing islands of all sorts, I was inspired to create a hat that reflected the waters, the winding trails and paths, and the points to rest and take in the views. Thus was born the Peddock Island Beanie.
