Finally some progress

This weekend I finished the hat I started a few weeks ago. I just haven't been spending any time crocheting or knitting because I'm so exhausted from life. Of course I changed the pattern I was following. I did not stripe the hat because the yarn I was using was interesting enough without stripes. I also did more rounds because I wanted it to cover my ears. It ended up being too loose with 55 chains around so I had to reduce down to forty something in the last rows with an hdc instead of the dc that the rest was made in. While making this hat, I was also trying to teach my friend Rosalynd how to crochet the same hat. She was intoxicated for part of her construction as well as being left handed. So it was tricky to teach her. She must have switched her gauge or something between rounds. She decided it wasn't worth continuing, I agreed. So Milo is wearing her crazy little doll hat.
