My newest crafty endeavor is knitting.  My sister taught me a year ago and I haven’t stopped yet!  One of my favorites so far is this hat.  I’ve made it twice so far.  The pattern is free on Ravelry here:

I made this one for my niece Carrie.  I purchased a bunch of faux fur pom poms on etsy and the seller threw this hot pink one in for free.  It was a perfect match to some yarn I had, and perfect for Carrie!
