Mother's Day came early this year! I guess you don't really need an excuse to give your mother a present though, do you? Every day is Mother's Day!
The hat turned out just right. Mom didn't want it blocked, just liked it as is, so it's a little softer and a little less shaped than it would be if I'd sprinkled water on it and blocked it around a plate the way they tell you to do. But, heck, it's angora, and what's better than that?? Blocking-schmocking. The diamond pattern is so pretty and the star pattern, too, and I am just so freakin' pleased with how it all turned out. Vive la knitting!
