While back home I finished up yet another Fake Isle hat!
Originally this hat was intended to be gifted to Olena since she -flipped out- over mine and was threatening to steal it from me(!)
So I decided to make her one of her very own.
Now, the funny thing about knitting is that no two pieces are ever, really, going to be the same. And I'm not sure if I was just having an extra stressful week when I was knitting this (well, I was come to think of it!) but I knit this hat up -extremely- tight.
Here's a photo of the new hat on top of the old hat. These hats were knit with the exact same type of yarn, exact same needles and yet as you can see the newer hat is significantly smaller then the previously knit hat! So much so that I highly doubt that it will fit Olena.
It does, however, fit me just right (I have a small head!) and I don't mind a more snug fit. And to be brutally honest... I adore the colors, they're SO me that I kind of want to keep it. *blush*
So I am going to keep this one for myself and give Olena the older hat since I already know she likes it, and it hasn't been worn much.
