Three-cornered Hat for Mom

Three-cornered Hat
Originally uploaded by Strickanfall.

And because Mom wore a brown/orange hat with her Purl Scarf and Fetchings last winter, I made her a matching hat from the leftover yarn. J is modeling, but I assure you it fits me.

Meine Mutter brauchte eine passende Muetze zu ihrem Purl Scarf und den Fetchings von letztem Jahr -- sie trug eine braun-orange Muetze dazu. Und sie ist genau die Art Frau, die sowas "uebertriebenes" gut tragen kann.

Pour ma mere, pour aller avec son Purl Scarf et ses Fetchings de l'annee derniere pour l'empecher de les porter avec un chapeau marron-orange.
