FO: Bean's First Christmas Santa Hat

Hey, you gotta love last-minute holiday knitting, right? Who's with me? Ha! Yeah, not so much. Unless it's a baby noggin-sized Santa Hat of cuteness. In which case it's perfectly alright!

Bean's First Christmas Hat
pattern: Wee Santa Hat by Debbi Young McNeer (Ravlink)
yarn: The red one is a mystery, found in stash, the white fluffy yarn is Jo-Ann Sensations Beautiful in 01 (off white) - just a smidge of each
needles: US8

I whipped up this baby in a day- talk about instant gratification! Bonus: pompom action!

With most of my holiday knitting behind me (I'll be posting pictures of those later, once I get modeled shots), it suddenly dawned on me that Bean *needed* a Santa Hat. I mean, right? I found some red yarn in the stash which would most certainly do, but I didn't have any white yarn in sight. So off to Jo-Ann's we went, in search of "fun" yarn. I mean, if I'm gonna do this, I need to do it right, right? I must say that the yarn I found is perfect! So people, there is a time and a place for "fun", fluffy yarn. :)

Happy Holidays from me and Bean to you and yours!

Oh that picture! She could not look more adorable. She should have an annual christmas hat, at least until she's old enough to object :)
