I finished R's beanie, right down to an extra large pom pom. I hadn't intended the pom pom to be 'that' large but I couldn't undo it. Luckily R thinks it's OK, so it's still on! I'm worried it's weighing the beanie down making it extra slouchy!
The pattern (minus the pom pom) can be found here.And first time knitter R has made a really good start on her scarf. As with all first knitting attempts there are a few oopsies but she's enthusiastic and that's the main thing. Let's hope it's maintained long enough to get to scarf length!
