FO! but defeated. (Project Spectrum woes)

I finished the Santa Cruz and I just love this photo detail of the stitch pattern on the top:

I used Wool of the Andes in the Rain colorway. I like the pattern, but the hat it does not fit. Well, it doesn't fit me. Of course it fits Jackson:

A few people at work just had girl babies - maybe they would like it.

I'm headed to Mohegan Sun tonight with some gals from work. I was going to swing by Saybrook Yarn to get the needles that I need, but I was asked to carpool, so that got kaboshed. I tried to go to Yarns, Yarns, Yarns after picking Jackson up from the groomer (that's why he has on a heart bandana) but they were closed too - unexpectedly due to a family death. I'm just not meant to get the needles. Maybe tomorrow. I really should get on my grading / report card stuff.

I'm sorry the hat didn't fit. Any advice for me on how you'd want the pattern modified to make it work better?

I can't wait for vacation.!!!! Midterms are taken care of, now I just have to worry about getting stuff ready for out performances next week, that should be exciting.
I did the baby hat from LMKG (the one with the tie through it) It came out SOOOOOO cute. I did pink wwith a yellow tie. I love it.
I am dropping hints about a digital camera for my birthday, so hopefully I will be aboe to show pictures soon.

Mohegan Sun sounds like fun. We need something like that here in dismal Vancouver,

Well, I just had my giggle for the day. Jackson is adorable and what a patient model. I'm wondering if there's a little movie star in him. He looks like a natural.
