so i knitted an earflap hat a month or so ago. it fits and everything, it's just that i used a chunky weight acrylic yarn and i think that was a big no-no, because when i wear the hat, the ear flaps kind of bend upwards! i look like i'm wearing one of those "flying nun" hats!! (image google flying nun and you'll see what im talkin about)

so, i had a fit about it, and in a frenzy i twisted and pulled the earflaps into something that resembles a turnip. i didn't mean to, i swear!

i actually like it better this way. teehee!

That is so cute!

I'd almost want to see the turned-up wimple look that it was before Cheesy

Did you try washing it? I've found that can help to loosen it a bit...

It's the  cutest turnip I ever did see.  Wink

It's a toothpaste on the wrong side of the toothbrush kind of day.

AHAHAHAHA! That expression on your face is priceless. It's like you're daring us to laugh at your turnip.

OMG I love it the way  it is!!

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day

I like it. 

I think if you feel like you screwed-up a knitting project it's best to describe it as "modifying the pattern".  Then apply an adjective like "punk", "kitsch", or "mod". 

Screw-up?  What screw-up?

Hot tips, KnitterMa. Hot tips.

Looking at the grumpy photo of you in your punk-turnip hat while listening to your sensitive indie songs on mySpace is blowing my mind a little bit, Ms. lover of Gene Wilder. Juxtaposition!

p.s., that's a sweet New Order cover you've created.

I don't see a turnip. Looks more like something that Genghis Khan would've worn to me!  Grin
