sort of FO

I finished my hat, but it’s too small.  Maybe.  Well, sort of.  It fits me fine in the sense that it fits my head, but it’s too small in the sense that there’s not quite enough slouch.  I’ve blocked it on a dinner plate…

but it’s still not quite right.  Close, but not quite.  I’ve been walking around the house with it on my head, peering in to mirrors at different angles, yarn ball in hand because I haven’t been confident enough to actually cast off and cut the yarn.  It’s hard to tell really if the problem is the hat or my head, because I really look rubbish in hats. I may be placing the blame where it doesn’t belong.

Nonetheless, it’s such a brilliant pattern and I’m in love with this yarn, so I think I’ll frog it and try again.  It deserves a second chance.
