the last project of '09, and the first for the new year!

My last FO of 2009...and it's for ME!!!

I still have 4 more to make…good thing these only take a few hours from start to finish!

love the hat. can you please explain the brim construction to me as the pattern is a little vague. do you knit the brim flat and then sew it closed with the button? any details would be appreciated. alice
