Russian knit helmet

Tess recovered it from deep within the couch this morning. She was oddly more willing to pose with this one (still bothers her chin, though) than with the crochet hat which is her new favorite.
My MIL knit this from memory (says she made one every year for E). She used "Angel Hair" yarn from JoAnn's, very soft but already showing wear. Ah, well, she'll need a new one soon enough.
