I loved knitting this hat, my first project in-the-round, and first try with beads (really easy, great fun) :woot:

I did it in two days, for Mum's birthday, but its too 'twinset & pearls', I doubt she'll wear it :cry:

Pattern: Odessa http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/odessa#

It looks awesome! Why did you knit that pattern if you thought it might be something she wouldn't like? :??

That is really pretty. The color is lovely and looks great with the beads! I hope she does like it, if not, you can always keep it!:out:

I knew she'd love the colour, and probably the pattern, its the beads that don't quite say 'Mum'. Thats pretty much all the LYS had to offer, else lime green or black :gah: Will source some others next time!

Oh I see. I'd give it to her anyway and maybe you could make her another one the same, but w/o the beads so she'd have a choice. I bet she'll love it though because you made it. :hug:

Your hat is beautiful! Love the beads. Wouldn't this make a great style for a chemo cap! It would brighten anyone's day.

THAT is a great idea which I will have to make a reality soon. Off to the LYS I go.:out:

Well Rosey, what was your mothers' reaction?

She loved it didn't she?

I like it too. It's very pretty.

Thanks for all the support guys :grphug: I feel better.

Well, she likes it. Dunno about luvvin it, but she's wearing it, because she said people keep asking her where she got it. Which is COOL :woohoo:

Thank you for the pattern, I tried one with the materials I had on hand and it turned out pretty good. I have the correct yarn and beads on order and can't wait to attempt the pattern again.
