I was reading blogs, and found a pattern for a hat made with bulky yarn on the Purl Soho website, and since I happened to have a lump of bulky yarn sitting on my footstool, I decided to make it. As usual, I was running out of yarn, but ended up with about 24 inches of the blue left over at the end. (The green is from my floor doily.)
I am having issues with my gauge... this hat turned out way too big for me. It fits DH, but he says it looks dorky. It is Very Warm, so if you need a warm hat, and don't mind looking (a little) dorky, let me know, and it is yours. If no one chimes in, it will go to a charity.
Who knows, if this is a cold winter, I may make this again with new yarn and smaller needles, because I like it!
