Fixed Topiary

Remember the Topiary Hat that I had to take out because I did the smaller size?…

Well…I started on the larger size and it went perfectly. It was a much better fit. Too bad the snow has all melted; although, I hear a nasty rumour we may get more snow on Monday so maybe I’ll get a chance to wear it this year after all…

Oops Hat

Every now and then you make an oops with picking a size. I find it especially difficult when picking a hat size. I find the sizing sort of a personal preference and I often find that hats stretch out more than you think. That being said I chose the smaller size for the “Topiary Hat” I told you about in my last post. It was looking beautiful and half way done when I was able to semi-try it on and realize that it was going to be uncomfortably tight and not slouchy looking enough…

The lace pattern does look gorgeous though eh! Too bad the hat now looks like this…

Lol! Poor hat. Oh well, at least I really know all of the symbols for the lace chart now and I’ll be able to whip the larger size out in no time. Stay tuned for take two…
