Guess what I got in the mail today!

No, not yarn. An ad for tractors. Because I subscribe to the Mother Earth News, despite the fact that I live in the city, in a little apartment, and don't even have a yard. I opened my mailbox, took one look, and started laughing; this is when you know you want to move. (Yesterday Sweetie was asking if we might want to move next year and I immediately said YES - no hesitation.)

The hat may have manliness issues. And it's a bit short over the ears, but adding length will make it too long over the eyes, and Sweetie strenuously objects to earflaps - apparently they are childish (but a bobble on top isn't! He has no objections to that). I do have to admit it isn't the most manly hat I've ever seen, but I'm not sure how to fix that. Maybe get rid of the bobble.

Do you mean bobble or pompom? I think the hat looks very handsome but I could make a better judgment on "manliness" if I saw it on the man.

It's a bobble! (My first one.) Out of the light blue yarn - I haven't sewn it on yet, though.
