I have been missing my Grandma a lot lately (she moved to Georgia which is really far away from Michigan) She used to Knit/crochet hood/hats like this when I was little. I was too little to know the difference between Crochet and Knit stuff lol anyways this type of hat reminds me of her. Hers weren't as detailed as mine but it still makes me think of her :) I made my daughter one and it makes me feel like things have gone full circle. My Grandmother made one for me and I made one for my daughter :D I omitted the big pom poms she usually put on everything though haha. (I'm not a big fan of pom poms) My daughter always wants everything orange so we compromised on the yarn color of hers haha. I'm not into multi colored yarn but I really didn't feel like making another orange hat haha. (she has a TON of orange hats)
