The Tragic Hat

:note: Ironfire

I just got done knitting the stupidest hat ever and I am sad about it. I calculated my stitches correctly (OR SO I THOUGHT) but I think I mis-measured my head when I was figuring out how many inches I was supposed to have and the hat turned out STUPID.

It is intentionally supposed to be kind of dorky, but oh my god it is horrible. I know everyone has that embarrassing knitting project they wish they had never had the misfortune to complete, but I’m so sad this was mine, especially because I had such high hopes for the yarn. It’s so pretty. It cost more money than I have ever spent on a skein of yarn. And it is bad. It’s pretty, but unwearably huge.

I still need to put pom-poms on the corners. Maybe that will redeem it. I sort of envision it making it look even crazier-stupid than it already is, though.

    I laugh until I cry every time I look at the photo of Daniel with the hat on backwards and the top perfectly flat up in the air. It’s something about his expression combined with the idiocy of the hat. Gets me every time. :grin:
