Knitting for Buttercup

I used up a good portion of a fuzzy* ball of purple yarn to knit this ear-flap hat for Buttercup. It's a little bit big on her - I used the only ear-flap cap pattern I have which is sized for teens but I thought using a lighter weight yarn and smaller needles would make it smaller than it did.

Oh well. It will fit her for a long time.

I think she looks pretty darn cute in it. I can't stop her (or her mother, when she tries it on) from yanking down on the dangling braids. I'm sure they'll come loose eventually.

*Note to self: knitting with fuzzy, furry yarn is a giant pain in the rear. Try to steer clear of it in the future.
