Feb 12/12/12 boy

Hi, Here is my last project for the month. It is a hat for my son's "girlfriend" birthday. She will be five. Ever since they met at one year old they are always together (don't ask about the kissing incident!) I CO'd 42 stitches and knit for about 9 inches before finishing the bag. The tie can be unwoven then raised or lowered for fit. I made it so she can use it a long time and with three different ties (in case one gets lost or she likes a different one each day. I used Burlee yarn from Natura's in Midnight Radience (and wished I had larger circs.) So, the knitting sock bag was just under 200 yds and this hat was 175 yards. Next month I am making a wedding gift and then it is back to socks.
