After my stash busting fail a couple of weeks ago where I ran out of yarn for a baby dress, my mum came to the rescue and went to the shop I got the yarn from earlier this year when I was visiting England, bought another ball of it and posted it to me.
It arrived on Monday and I only had a little bit left to do and I finished it in an hour yesterday evening:

I'm so pleased with that hat now it's got that finishing touch :)
