Mom's Bucket Hat

Here's my first FO of '07, I spun all day yesterday and plied it with some singles I already had.
and started crocheting in the afternoon... I crocheted until about 12:30 last night and finished it up around noon today.
The pattern is my own.

here's a close up:

100 times better than the one I had, plus I got the case, cable and a memory card too!
