Here's the hat I made for Anna. Her Mom came over with her winter coat for next year (great deals right now at Lands End) and we went up to my yarn stash and found this popcorn yarn. I just love it...can't wait to see it on her. When you touch it it has this chenille feel to it.
Part of why I love knitting so much is because you really never know how the piece will look until your done. It's a very satisfying feeling to look at a finished project that started as a single strand of yarn. I could get WAY more philosophical about it, but I'll spare you...for now. :)
