brown bear, brown bear

I am in love with this hat! I finished it over a week ago, but haven't been able to get a good picture of it. So when we were out walking around downtown yesterday morning I had Charles snap a quick picture of it in front of the pretty red brick. (By the way, I LOVE our downtown.)
I've really been making an effort lately to experiment with things, and not be bound to patterns. So, this hat was definitely an experiment. Next time I will: 1) make a ribbed brim instead of rolled, 2) make the bow bigger, and 3) change up the way I do the decreasing stitches towards the top. But still. I lovelovelove it.

Very cute, the red wall was a good backdrop. I agree with Jessica about the yellow bow and the yellow scarf.

Oh, I lovelovelove it too! The wee bow is perfect and you look so cute but edgy in it!
