I am going to admit there were stages of happiness with this hat. It is a test-knit, so regardless it was going to be finished, but that ended up being a good thing. When I saw the test-knit, I love the look of it and offered to be a tester. . . however, as I knitted, I just thought it looked funny and I would never wear it . . . I finished it and plopped it on my head to see if it even fit and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Now its blocked and I am still in love with it and am so glad that I had to finish it, otherwise, I might not have and would not have this spiffy hat. I loved it so much, I making stripey gloves to match it for this fall/winter.

P.S. - I know you probably cannot tell, but since I started trying to loose weight last year, I have lost 33lbs and 15 of that has been since I have been eating Paleo! :) I am quite happy with that.
