Heart of a hat

The Mirasol line has totally captured my heart. No wonder that this hat - hearts and all - would fly off of my needles. Of course, it is for Bugg.

Size 9 needles gave me gauge, had I to do it over again, size 10 (which is what is called for) may have been my choice as the hat is a tad snug.

The pattern is the Isla hat out of Book One and is knit with Mirasol's Sulka.
I considered adding tassels or braids to the ear flaps, but decided it was good for now - we'll see how Bugg likes it.
There is a thicker sock on my needles right now and I'm pretty certain I can finish them this week. They will be mom's birthday gift and she is sure to love them.
