Whew! This project took me way too long to finish.  It wasn’t difficult and I got like 7/8 of it done, I had half of one leg warmer to finish and to make & attach the pompom but Then. Just. Stopped.
Do you ever just get bored with something or find better things to do? LOL!

That’s what happened here…plus school started so I think I got a little bombarded with too many things that had immediate deadlines. Whereas the baby this is for isn’t due until December so I kept putting it off. It is a weight off my shoulder to finally be done tho!



This WIP pic shows the color waaay better. The finished picture was taken at about 10:30 last night so the lighting was not ideal AT ALL. But I wanted to bring it in to work today for the woman I made it for (it’s for her first granddaughter) so I had to settle for lamp light.



This is the hat pattern

What a lovely hat. I would love one for myself if it were cold enough to wear one here.

Thank you all so much.  It was very well received and now I'm just waiting patiently for the baby to be born so I can see her in it  Grin
