Mad Not-Really-a-Hatter

 
I made a beret for Marguerite. She won't let me angle and flop it properly though, so there it is. I was supposed to sew on a flower as an accent. Marguerite said to go ahead, but my sister Chip thought that would be too much (in reality TV judge talk, "It will look too busy."). The hat is Marguerite's of course so it's her call. I'm thinking of making the flower detachable since she likes whirling it around. She also likes putting her feet in the hat, so I'm not too sure about her judgment. In the meantime, I'm using a safety pin to attach the flower. Since creating the beret, I've had two other requests: a brown beret for Chip and a black skull cap for Husband. I need to go out and get some more yarn.

What an adorable hat! My daughter has a hat that my mother-in-law made and she loves it. I think handmade hats and mittens are so warm and are rare these days.
