Damn you, Miss Daswhood!

Miss Dashwood, originally uploaded by Ladymama.

This is a hat I busted my butt working on back in October. The pattern is from, the yarn is a soft cashmerino aran by debbie bliss, and I thought it would be so nice for sunny winter days at the park. Maybe it will be, WHEN SHE'S FIVE. This freakin' hat turned out enormous. I have no idea why. It has no structure at all- completely floppy, and if I put the brim so that you can see her eyes, it looks like Ivy has cascading purple hair. You'd think I might have noticed while I was making it that it was working up quite large, but no. I did not. I lie awake at night fantasizing about shaking the pattern designer by the lapels, asking her where I went wrong, and why the pattern I followed exactly looks so perfect on her baby and not mine!
