Oscar's Hat

A friend recently welcomed a new baby boy to the world, and this is my contribution to his wardrobe.

It's the Candy Cane hat from Itty Bitty Hats, knit in some Lion Brand Cotton Ease with a contrasting red pom. The pom is Crystal Palace Yarns Merino 5 Solid. It is super cute! I'm also very please with my stripes and the switch between colors. It turned out very nicely.

It took me forever to finish this hat. About the time I was almost done, this crazy thing called "engagement" happened to me, rendering me unable to focus on anything at all for more than 5 minutes. My mind has been skipping and hopping to a million different places ever since then.

But, finally it is finished, and just as cute as can be. I'll try to pop it in the mail tomorrow or maybe next week. I'm a little nervous because Oscar's mom also knits and if the pom falls off I'll be so embarrassed. So, say a little prayer it stays on. Thanks.
