My head is too big

Well, it probably is in that way, too, but I'm talking about knitting.

I spent last night working on the Santa Hat from Handknit Holidays. I figure with the stretch of a knitted fabric, I could get away with the woman's size. I knitted to gauge (oh, you know where this is going. . .)

Too small. With the bobbles and the bind-off. . .well, you get the picture. (And no, there's not going to be a picture).

Well, I'll find someone who needs a Santa hat. . .

You could at least post a picture of the hat alone. :-)

Actually, I tried it on Benjamin Bear and it fits perfectly! So when I get a chance I'll get a photo of that.

Yeah, hat stretchiness is over-rated. Or, I knit a hat - intended for me - perfectly to gauge and it wouldn't fit a baby doll, much less Benjamin Bear. Love the Fair Isle stuff I was doing, but it could not be rescued, so I frogged it completely. Sigh.

I LOVE that Santa hat in any size!
