This was finished last week. It was made up in a yarn she had knitted a few projects with and it was so soft and nice (I lost the info card) that I asked if she wanted a hat, too. It's the same pattern I used for Pete's hat last year, but I made it smaller and added the pom-pom, at her request. Afterwards, I wanted to make many many more pom-poms. I might have to. Perfect for leftover yarn. I have a few of the clover pom-pom maker-thingys—which didn't help me at all until I watched a you-tube video on how to use them because I got them years ago and the directions were long gone. I plan to start the sweater project soon.
I'm brain storming what gift to make this year for friends and family that's a consumable type of thing which will also fit into the extra smallish jars I have from making all my salves. I also am finishing up an advent calender (more complicated than last year's) and it's been fun and good for me to work on. I have officially used a lot of glitter.
