I was going to show you pictures of Kat (rav link), but it turns out I didn't have quite enough yarn to finish. So I ripped it out. I'll be casting on Lucky instead, because I want my lovely green and purple birthday yarn to be a slouch hat or beret. It's been sitting in my stash since August, and it's told me only recently what it wants to be.
I'll be leaving off the pompom, though -- and I'll be knitting in the round. No way am I knitting this flat and seaming.
