FO: it was an accident...
A couple of weeks ago I posted photos of a summer dress for my old 18" doll - it turned out pretty well, not exactly what I planned but fine, I like it, I just wanted the skirt a little fuller, but I usually get things too big.

Then I decided a sunhat would be the thing to go with it. (partly cause she has such an ugly hairstyle, I'd like to try making hats for her regardless of the season).

So I did, and here's my first attempt. Once again, it doesn't "quite" fit, to put it mildly. (as usual, too big!) I should be annoyed with myself for not getting it right I guess, but when I took the photos I realized - look at the profile photo. The dress and hat - isn't she almost a perfect "Sunbonnet Sue"!???

I couldn't have done that if I tried lol. She's so silly looking, she's adorable. I smile every time I walk by the cabinet. So instead of ripping out the hat, she can be Sunbonnet Sue for the summers, and I have (yet another) "failure" that can act as a future pattern.

Gosh, knitting is just one big adventure after another.
