a very happy new year to everyone!

I started 2008 out right, by finishing a whole project in one day! While we were upstate for Christmas, I got some color and style guidance for the hat that Mom requested. She wanted something simple, and blueish gray. The yarn is Patons Rumor, which has great color combinations. I whipped this up yesterday while (nearly) passed out on the couch. (This cold doesn’t seem to be eager to take a hike. Though I really really wish it would.)

I love making hats. I think this year is going to be the year of the hat.

The pom-pom isn’t attached to the hat… yet. Mom can make the decision on whether or not to put it on herself. I think it’s totally cute, but Hubby wasn’t sure it complimented the overall garment. (Use it, use it!)

A very happy new year to y’all!

I vote for pom pom.
Maybe to make it more "relaxed" you/she could make it a pom-pom on a string from the top. Whimsical, but not like wearing a propeller on top of your head.
