Although not to make something for me, Alison instead. She's been having some frosty nighttime soccer practices, not to mention games, and needed a hat. So I grabbed some of the leftover yarn from Emmy's Pinwheel Sweater - in purple of course (her team color) - and cast on a hatty amount of stitches.
After finishing the knitting part I asked if Ali wanted a pom-pom. She said that she certainly wanted a "puff puff" and I smacked one on top. Ta da!
