And while I was at it, I also decided to make myself a naalbound hat. It was attempt number 10985037 and all the other ones before this one horribly failed. All the other times I started at the top of the hat and increasing never worked the way it should; at any rate all the hats turned out to be awful and ugly.
But not this one! Yay! I started at the bottom this time, with a nice bit of leftover burgundy wool. The hat is made entirely of bits of leftover wool, even the embroidered flowers. I added those to create unity with the mittens.
