FO FRIDAY: Girl, that's not your hat

A while back I tried to make Sarah Wilson’s Chi-Chi Slouchy Beret.

I’ve finally finished my brother’s Recess for Grownups mittens.

These were project #5 on my WIP list, so there are just 3 more to go. I think I’m going to reward myself with a handfull of hexipuffs before getting back to one of my larger WIPs. 6 more words
