I did it! I actually followed a pattern, even with the yarn the pattern calls for!

It's for my brother for Christmas. But since he likes cameras about as much as a voodoo witch doctor, my glass headed goddess ($12 at the flea market!!) Estella is wearing it.

Front view:


She looks bad with a towel stuffed up her face. Oh well, now I know.

Thanks for your time and attention! We now return you to the less-crazy world....

He actually let me take pictures! I have a great brother. I did have to go back and make it bigger, so he could fit all his hair under it. That was an interesting learning lesson.

knitting rocks.

That's a nice hat.  Good job.

Also, your icon is ridiculously cool.  I want to knit Jayne's hat some day.

The hat looks really good, and looks even better on your brother.  Great job!

I love this pattern and those are SWEET colors, Suzie. It looks awesome. I'll bet your bro loves it. Clearly he loved it enough to have his picture taken wearing it. Great job!

Thanks everybody. It was really the best knitting I've done. It was great of him, because everytime we went somewhere he'd be like "You like my hat? She made it for me." That was fun.

This turned our really good!  I love the colors and it looks like it fits a normal sized head very well!  I agree that your glass head looks a little bad with a towel shoved up in here, but at least you have one! Smiley She's amazing! I wonder what else you could put in there?  Maybe some time of paper confetti?  Actually, I'm not sure you needed to put anything in there, really. Great work, I bet he loved it! Smiley

Thanks! He does love it, still wears it, and still tells people his sister made it for him. Smiley I've got white and pink tissue paper stuffed up in my glass head now (so it looks like she has a brain! lol.) She's the thing sitting on top of the bookshelf with the light with no shade behind her, so when I turn on the light it looks like she's had a really good idea.
