Hats in Bamboo

I completed a couple of caps I was working on for a friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

I can't really express my feelings about cancer in the way I would like because this is a family blog. Needless to say, knitting in the face of news of a new diagnosis seems wholly inadequate yet sometimes it's the only thing you can do.

I'm worried about the fit on the tan one; it's awfully square. Now to get them in the mail.
