Here's Cary's hat! I finished it about an hour before he's scheduled to be home.
I didn't have the correct needles, and even though the pattern called for bulky yarn, this is really bulky! But I still think it turned out well, especially for my first one. I think my model is stunning as well!
I shopped all morning (I'm sure there will be a rant on this later) and finally bought a Boye interchangeable needle set. Next time I *will* have the right needles!
