I think once the holiday season is over, that I am going to experiment with the homespun yarn. I'll let you know how I do. I have a mustard-brown color and think the little bear hat might look cute in it, kinda like a winnie the pooh hat.
I am working on a granny stitch hat to go with my daughter's holiday outfit. http://www.luv2crochet.com/skullcappattern.html
