I have good news and I have bad news.
The good news is that I managed to complete a hat and it actually looks good!! It only took me a few hours to complete it, too! I've had lots of comments on it...

The bad news? The hat was meant for me, but actually fits my 3 month old daughter!!

I must have followed the pattern wrong when it came time to do the decreases... I dunno!!

I thought that it might be a little bit off in size (oops, I kind of didn't bother to do a gauge swatch), but I didn't expect it to be THAT far off. *looks sheepish* The pattern said "to fit an 18" to 21" head -- and my head is about 20" around.

Eh... no biggie. At least my daughter can wear it. No idea what I did wrong, though. LOL
