Finished Cocoon

I am S-O-O-O-O-O-O happy with the finished results of my cocoon and hat for EG.

 I swear, it seemed like the cocoon took FOREVER to do the bag from the hearts to the top. Then, the "collar" went like gang busters.





The hat is a different story. It went faster than any hat I have ever made. In my mind's eye, the hat I wanted for this cocoon. I wanted something kind of kooky and fun, to balance the hearts on the cocoon.

Aren't those pom-poms on the corners the funniest things? I'm going to tell my nephew I put pom-poms on it to start her out on her journey to be a cheerleader . . . LOLOL 

He played football, basketball and baseball. Now he coaches middle school football and umpires Little League. But, he isn't the only athlete in the family . . .his wife coaches high school softball. Her players think it would be cool for her to go into labor on the field. She told them, "NOT ! ! ! ! !"

Now, to wash the cocoon, box it up and send it to EG for her 1st Valentines Day gift.

The pattern is posted here.
