While I'm here, let me show you a finished Odessa so I can send the pictures into Grumperina's gallery.

I cannot wear fitted hats without looking like a 14-year-old skater boy, so I knit mine on 8's out of worsted instead of the DK & 6s recommended by the pattern. Ergo, slouch, but not too much. I didn't learn how to use my macro mode until yesterday (seriously) so no up close pictures.

Cascade 220 in a marled black and brown...I barely used half the skein, and could probably get another hat out of it but can't be positive without a scale.
Knit on Bryspun DPNS & a Clover circ.
Also, no beads. So not me.

I love this hat more than life itself. It's perfect and knit up easily in a little over a day. Thank you Grumperina!

What a great hat - I really like it it this way! It suits you well, good choice on foregoing the beads too - that yarn is perfect without.

Also, that is an impressive collection of WIPs - project choices and knitting, not number ;) Clessidra is such a gorgeous sock pattern, I'll look forward to seeing yours, and the miracle of lace blocking really IS a miracle - I have a lace swatch (dreaming for a wrap) to post up soon, should have taken before & after pics
