And I even have hair!

Shedir Drama Update: 18 rows to go and about 3 yards of yarn left. Things are not looking good for Homestar Knitter.

Sigh. But, and I can't decide if this makes matters better or worse,

my gauge might be juuuuust a titch off.

So, my choices are to bust into the second ball of Calmer for about 10 rows' worth of knitting, producing a ginormous hat that would probably fit King Kong (and people, my head is not abnormally small or anything--I just measured and it's 22" around), or rip back and do one less pretzel repeat and produce a more normal sized hat out of just one ball of Calmer, at the expense of much pain-in-the-ass work. Sigh. Neither choice is desirable, but I think I'm going to have to go with Door Number Two.

And speaking of Number Two, topping all this off is that when I was cleaning up after Bailey this morning I TOUCHED POOP. So I am off to scrub my hand with Clorox and a wire brush for the 86th time today.

Shedir is turning out too big and you touched poop in one day? Girl - you need a cookie! If it helps any the hat is really pretty...

The hat is gorgeous and I love the color. Sorry you are in a bad spot, but it happens to the best of us! Ewww... poop. I have come in contact with cat poop too many times recently!

EWWWW!!!! POOP!! I totally have to scrub my hands after cleaning up after my cat. Even though my version of cleaning up after a cat involves a long-handled scoop and a pair of disposable latex gloves.
On the other hand, the hat looks great -- and you definitely don't look like a shriner!
