So I crocheted myself this awesome hat, but it turns out that I got the gauge wrong a bit and it’s just a tad too big for me. Now I have to figure out what to do with it. It’s dark blue & light blue stripes, with metallic silver bits all wrapped around the yarn. Here,

So does anyone with a slightly bigger than me head want a hat? I’ve already given two to Adam, so I’m not giving him this one…

    Pretty! Can you make a bag/purse out of it?

      It’d be a bit of a weird-looking purse… certainly not anything I’d like, anyhow.

        When I take the picture, I’ll have to show you my “patchwork” purse I crocheted!

        Similar in shape to your hat, urpsidedowner, with a closure flap and an arm strap 🙂

    It doesn’t look that big on you!

      it feels wrong, though. I like my hats snug. It’s not terribly big on me – it just doesn’t feel right. I’ll make myself another one with the right gauge. I’ve still got enough of the yarn left.

        Heh, it feels wrong, that’s cute.

        I am not a hat person otherwise I’d be all for it! but you look good in hats.
