Another Hat and a Few Flowers

Despite our recent spring-like weather, I've been working on a hat with a pattern I got from a knitting friend.  The pattern turned out to be free, and I even had some appropriate yarn. I decided to try to convert the pattern which was for a slouchie hat and make just a "normal" one. And here it is!  Boy, does bulky yarn ever knit up quickly!

Since we've had some nice weather lately, we've been doing some raking of leaves and
enjoying some spring flowers. 

Hurrah for spring flowers!

What in the world is this? That's probably what you thought when you looked at this photo, isn't it?

Well, as you can see, it's a two-sided hat that's supposed to be extra warm!

It was kind of like knitting a giant sausage! It's not a difficult pattern, however, I am not sure how to block it.  Any suggestions?  As for warmth, I will let you know after the recipient wears it, and that won't be for some time because she's off enjoying the sunshine at the moment.
