I'm pretty proud of myself. The biggest compliment was when my oldest daugther asked if we could share it.
I'm still on the hunt for the perfect winter hat. I love this red one that Kristen Dunst wears in Elizabethtown. (One of my favorite movies, by the way, except for the Susan Sarandan parts, which I hate).
Mine is a little too tall, I like the rounder, flat on top look like the red one.
I will keep practicing. Unless, of course, any of you knitters out there can direct me to a ready made pattern similar to this one. I don't HAVE to design the thing, I just want one!
