Finished my first hat...
So I just finished my frist attempt at a hat over the weekend and it didnt turn out too well. But it's OK, I know where I went wrong. Just thought I would post a picture of my poor hat that me and my roomate are now calling Dan.

It looks like something from Dr. Seuss!!! Do you know a child you can give it to?

then its more presentable

It looks fine as is. Actually would be perfect for a child, no? Be kind and gentle with Dan.

I get Dan

I like it... (but I wouldn't wear it). Was the yarn verigated, or did you do that yourself?

I like the knot on the top too.

Oooooooooooooo I like Dan!

The first hat I ever made was supposed to have kitty ears. I messed up my stitch count in the decreases and right next to the right kitty ear there was a big lump. My sister snatched it and hasn't brought it back

(....and she's 21 )

Thanks guys. I never thought of giving dan to a kid. I guess I was just distracted by his, erm, shape.

Verigated? What's that mean?

Veriegated means that there is more than one color on the skein of yarn... like if it fades from one color to the next...

Did you knit that from a pattern or did you just go at it?
