Well, I finished the cap of the Andean hat, sans ear flaps. You won't believe this -- but if you read a previous post, you just might --- the hat is too frigin' small!! ; for an adult, that is. Oh Crap!! My own fault -- I don't do swatching and I don't do gauge checking! It goes against my grain --- of getting at it and finishing it Fast!
Oh, I think the hat is Beautiful! I'm so proud of myself that the charting turned out great (2nd time around --- "around" -- ha, get it?) But I don't know of anyone I would trust with a wool hat for a child ; you know, washing -- machine -- boop -- Barbie doll hat.
I'm hoping that once the ear flaps are on and the 2 rows of crocheted edging are finished, it will magically become large enough to fit an adult. It's the "Polyanna" syndrome. I have it quite often when finishing a knitted item. It's a curse.
Anyway, what do you think?
Ok, that was weird. I just uploaded 2 photos, but they're not here! If they show up anywhere strange, I'm sorry. Let's try this again......
Ahhh, success!! (oops, I notice I didn't hit the "Done" button after the upload! Silly me!) Next time -- larger needles! Definitely larger needles!!
