First picture post! I've been dying to join in the posting goodness here, and the good day has arrived!

I really finished this a while ago, but haven't been able to post it. This was my first (successful) attempt at using knitting pattern more complicated than a basic scarf, as well as and my very first hat.

And me being Zoolander:

I thought this was a very nice hat pattern to begin with, not too hard, not to boring. And CUTE! Yay kitty hats!

Very cute.  Yay for you!
And I like your blue steel look :-)
Did it take long?  Any advice or tips on this hat for a fellow beginning knitter?

  Very cute!! Both the hat and you! Wink  I'm working on mine at this very second! My first hat too!!  After I finish, if looks half-descent, I'm making the Devil one to my son...hehehe...

Thanks you guys!

chaucey: No real advice with this hat, it's really quite straightforward and easy to follow. The pom-poms were the hardest part! I actually learned a lot of techniques while using this pattern, too, so you kind of get new skillz and a cute hat, too! It's really quick to knit, too. I finished it in about 5 days (minus procrastination on the pom-poms), knitting on and off while out of town at a wedding.

Totalele: I actually have made the devil hat as well, though it went off as a gift. It's fun to knit, too! Maybe it would be different on a smaller size hat, but when I knit it, I ended up stuffing the horns a bit to keep them from caving in so much.

Hope to see your hats up here soon!

She's crafty... and she's just my type!
