FO: Leaf Edged Hat
I made this hat for a Christmas present for DH's grandma. If I have time, I might try matching mittens. She's 90 and still very active on the farm, so I think she'd make use of them!

I used the leaf edging from The Knitters Bible and then picked up stitches and sort of followed the basic hat pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I put in the other picture so you can see the edging better. The yarn is Wool Ease in blue mist. Hope it fits her!
