man, what a letdown. get your money back

i told no fewer than 6 people that i’d have a knitted FO posted here today.

i don’t.

it’s the cabled hat – knitted flat, seamed up the sides. modeled after amy’s (mhcknitters – does she have a blog?) son’s hat that was the cutest, funniest thing i’ve ever seen.

however, i vastly undershot the length that it’d need to be to fit over my monster-sized head. as well as overshot how many stitches across it should be. (can we say “lazy gauge swatcher”?) i have it seamed up one side, and i’m going to do what any good knitter in my circumstance would do: the lazy thing. i’m going to pick up stitches from the band and see if i can’t knit a few more inches in the round to make it deep enough and snug enough.

or i’ll have to redo the whole sucker.
