Here's my hat

It's sadly true. The tassle is undeniably too huge. Oh well, I'll wear it for a day (for the principle of it) and then somehow figure out how to reduce the tassle size by about half. I don't even want to think about how I'm going to go about that. Do I just cut half of it out...or actually take the whole darned thing apart. Gosh it's huge...I don't want to remove it from the hat ...it's so well stuck on there :-) Anyways, my sweetums is right. I do look truly goofy with this hat on....why oh why is he always right. I guess it doesn't matter, because I will probably wear it anyways...just cuz I can. I can look goofy if I wanna! ha! Just wait till he gets his hat....I've got about 3 1/2 inches done...have to go till about 8 and then start the decreases...wow....this one does take a lot less effort. I'm still reeling over the fact that I actually finished that hat...and it's not July...I finished that hat in less than a month! This is a knitting miracle...a true knitting miracle.

I really like your hat! Nice job! If it were myself, and I wanted to have a smaller tassle I would take my time first. I would study and play with the size and then carefully cut it down to the size I liked. Worse case, you have to take if off and redo it. But hey, your almost totaly finished and it's still way cold out! Congradulations!

You'll like it better with a smaller tassel, I think. Great job on the knitting!

Ha. If this was a normal occurance in my house it wouldn't be blog worthy! Unfortunately, the norm would be for everybody to fend for themselves. I am starting to wonder if it is me. Maybe I think I'm handling the stress of tax season well but those who know me best might see me ready to crack at any moment. I hope that is not the case because I really do feel on top of things. :) Notice I don't post the days where they scream how I'm the worst parent in the world from their bedroom and how living on the streets would be better than living my household. :)
