a green hat for Dad

Here is a simple hat that I just finished knitting for my daddy.  He had brain surgery last September and is undergoing chemo each month.  I made him a brown hat from the same pattern when we found out about his cancer and he has worn it ever since.  I thought it was time for a different color.  B was happy to model it for me, but after 15 takes, we just couldn't get one with his eyes open.

I had great plans for a cream colored stripe in the middle, but I grabbed it going out the door on my way to have Baby M, so I didn't have time to find the other yarn.  By the time I got home from the hospital I was past the point of striping.  I guess I'll have to try that next time.  I was hoping he'd let me put a pompom on top, but it was a definite NO.
