Well, here it is, my very first FO. Well, techinically its my second. My first was that stripey willy warmer (http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1248/900305538_43d280c240.jpg). But for those who might be frightened of such things :roflhard: I'm considering this my first "real" finished project.

I got the pattern from here. It was the VW hat, and I just made it stripey instead of one solid color. I kind of forgot to change colors at the top, so it's got a big purple circle at the top. It was made of some stash acrylic, so it'll be perfect for those cold winter days at the barn taking care of all the horses.

Just terrific and you did a great job on your hat! Oh my goodness, that looks like it would itch a lot..... :)
