What is it?
It's a hat. It's a Christmas tree hat.
In the original picture the colorful yarns showing are the tails from all the bobbles
attached to the outside which still needed to be woven in and tied.
I made two of the final star I tested and stitched them together,
stuffed them a little and sewed them to the top of the tree.
We sent the hat home with family tonight for someone's first Christmas.
As it turns out it fits the intended recipient (GB#5) fairly well,
and she seems pretty happy about it.
To be fair, she always seems to be smiling in the pictures we receive.
We can't wait until it is safe to see her again in person.
