Can I stretch my hat?
I knit and felted a roll brim hat. I thought it was great and let it dry. Now I am thinking I would like it a little deeper so that it will sit lower on my head....can I soak it and then stretch it while wet to make it deeper or will this just make the situation worse?

Just got a digital camera for Christmas so as soon as I learn how to use it I will be able to post FO pictures !!!

you betcha! give it a good ol' tug! the fabric is very forgiving. don't get crazy with it, obviously, but you can do it pretty easily.
