I made my first hat last night! I was really shocked at how fast it went (took about 2 hours), and really surprised that it didn't turn out completely hideous. I was fully expecting a Gordon Gartrell shirt incident a la The Cosby Show... I'm betting when I attempt my first sweater it will be pretty hilarious.
The flowers on them are fun to make, but I'm still trying out different ways to get the petals just the right shape. I've got a bajillion rogue, unwrapped, test flowers laying around. They will probably just become cat toys.
