ive been knitting a gazillion scarves and i wanted to broaden my horizons for multiple reasons: 1) so my boyfriend won't think it was a total waste to buy me so much yarn for christmas, 2) because i work at michael's and they just handed over the advanced knitting class to me, 3) because i like looking at knitted things and thinking, "i could so make that", and 4) because i have a TON of yarn that i need to do something with.

my first attempt at a hat was pretty bad lol. it was my first attempt using dpn's, if it can even count as using them. after i got the hat transferred, it was so tight that i couldn't get it off LOL. plus, i started decreasing way too early and way too rapidly because i was using self-striping yarn and i was about to run out and didn't want to mess up the color scheme. so it ended up way too short and just goofy looking. so this time, i used this pound of peptobismal pink i've had lying around, and it came out PERFECT. here it is!!!

i made up the pattern, i just did a swatch and figured out how big it had to be, and went from there. =)
