Here is the pattern http://throughtheloops.typepad.com/through_the_loops/2007/12/working-hats.html

My mum bought this yarn at a craft fair in the adirondacks and sent it to me. So now Iím making a hat for her with it. I have no idea what it is made of or how many yards or weight or anything. She just said she got it at a craft fair in the adirondacks. It is mostl likely some kind of handspun, worsted weight wool. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2074/2637117408_7a26a918e9_o.jpg

OK I got down to the ear flaps, tried it on and it covered my eyes almost past my nose. it is WAAAAAY too huge. I was gonna frog halfway but I kinda got into the whole froggin thing during a movie (Charlie Wilson's war. It was pretty good) and I just frogged the whole thing. Oh well, I guess I gotta change needle size. I should go up right?

I saw that movie, it was pretty good! You frogged the WHOLE thing?:roflhard: You must have been very intent on watching the movie! Oh well, it was probably for the best (even though it was looking beautiful), yep I would go up in needle size.
Take another picture when you get going!!
