FO: Lace Hat.

On Monday, I was a bit frustrated that all of my projects were somewhat "big" projects, and was in need of some quick gratification. I grabbed a ball of yarn and found a free hat pattern on Ravelry, and a couple of days later I had a hat.

This is a terribly basic pattern, but I did have a problem with the sizing. The pattern said it was a slouchy hat, but even after seriously blocking it, it's not terribly slouchy, even after adding a few extra repeats in the main part of the hat. I suggest that anyone knitting this add at least a couple of extra inches than the pattern calls for.
