Cheri Hat with the addition of a button band to make it more boyish/soldier capish.
The hat weighs 22grams and the flower is 10grams. The flower is done in two colours because I wasn't sure I'd have enough to do it all in the matching colour, and I thought it might make it stand out better if the back row of petals was a solid colour. This hat can easily be handknit too, and I've done many in garter stitch, years ago. But on the machine....15 minutes :)
And now for the give-away! Early this year, I received an email from a book publisher offering me free books. I assumed it must be spam, but I did some googling, and the company did exist, and the books listed were soon to be released. I still couldn't believe that someone found my blog and wanted to give me books! Finally, I emailed her back. Indeed, no obligations. Since then, I've received several books, and I'm like a little child when a package comes! LOL. Right now, I'm at 48 followers. When I get to 50 followers, I'll let you know, and you can leave a comment, and I'll make a random drawing from the comments on that post. For the first draw, I'm offering the "Posh Pockets Sewing Tips". This is an adorable little book with tons of great sewing tips. I learned a few new things! So, if you're a casual reader, just add yourself to the followers list, and you might become the winner!

Ummm...I was doing good again about not buying yarn, but I grabbed a ball at Wal-Mart, and a couple balls yesterday at Michaels'...the photographer wants matching diaper covers and some more hats!
