well, i had actually intended to knit a hat... but somehow i screwed up and got a big nearly-flat circular thing... so i decided to fold the edges in and run elastic through and got something that's actually like a hat!

here it is, on my bed


and on teddymouse, my wonderful model




my sister got home from camp, saw it, and immediately started wearing it everywhere  Grin

what do you think?

Oh, it's adorable. I like how something cool can come from something that got messed up.

i'm so happy you guys like it  Cheesy i was really relieved that it actually turned out looking like something  Tongue

killerdaisy: i'm not sure exactly how much yarn i used, but i don't think it was very much.  i had this skein that could make a whole sweater (twas pretty huge, one of those big redheart skeins) and this thing barely even made a dent in it.

craftysunday: aww... your skills will improve, trust me.  and knitting isn't hard, i learned it from http://www.wonderful-things.com/newknit.htm.  and i knitted scarves for a whole year before i tried a supereasy poncho for my sister and now this, and now i'm knitting a purse (from my own made-up pattern).

well, thanks! i need some encouragement. and with winter right around the corner (ie: many hours indoors) i should take your advice and learn something new this year.

you know, it's funny...i used to chuckle at my roommates in college. while i was busy running back and forth between our house and the art building, they would sit at home and have knitting/sewing parties- making bags and sweaters, and even making quilts. i used to joke that i lived in a house of 'little old ladies trapped in the bodies of young women'. now, i envy their skills, and even want to learn to knit myself.

hooray!
