OK I know there have been alot of hat posts, but I just couldn't wait  Grin This hat I started last night an hour before I fell asleep, then this morning I worked on it for a few hours while watching the Ugly Betty marathon XD Here's the info
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Shocked Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Shocked Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
The yarn - is pictures below, I don't know exactaly what it is because I accquired it from my buddy Necia along with tons more which I am so greatful for! I used about 1 1/4 skeins, double stranded. The yarn is really interesting itself though, it is a single ply of 48%wool and 30%wool covered by a netting of black nylon.

Needles - 10 1/2 circulars, I didn't have any DPN's in that size so it was a little tricky

Pattern - http://knitosaurus.com/watermelon-jolly-rancher-earflap-hat/

Bad modeling picture

The yarn itself

Thanks for looking Cheesy
P.s.- If it wasn't for everybody's amazing help, I wouldn't be knitting anything besides scarves today :]

Your hat looks great. 

I use circulars now for everything I can get away with, scarves and other flat stuff, tubes, whatever.  If you use longer ones even when you do flat stuff it's a lot more comfortable, no more poking yourself or others with long needles!

The hard part of the kitty hat for me was picking up the stitches.  I kind of ending up doing something that didn't look like SnB directions but came out looking right.  Since it's picking up you can do it and tear it out until it looks right.   

Good luck!

Great job! I just made an earflappy job myself, they're fun.

I have some of that yarn (in green) lying around my basement.
