Thank you! I know this picture does not do it justice, but this is such a beautiful hat, with pretty little pearl beads in there :-) I wore it to church Christmas morning and all the ladies at my church were envious. Kath (the big knitter of the church) was going on about how wonderful your tension is! ha ha. It was great! Now, I have to convince Elena (my 2 year old) that it is not hers!
