i found the hats & mittens tin at the christmas tree shoppe and knew that it would be the perfect container for this gift. i'm starting a new pattern, again with the fair-isle, so i'll see how those go.
on to the hats. this is the camo jester hat the i did for my nephew. how cute is he? i cast another on for his mom thinking they'd match, but she desired a plain hat. (talked her into the pom pom) i was so glad that she was honest with me (and that i had the good sense to ask her) about what she wanted. i love it when my knit-wear recipients give me direction. there is absolutely nothing worse than making the item of your dreams only to find out that it's their nightmare.
