The Not Quite a Hat Hat

I am blaming my big fat head on this one. I had estimated that I had enough yarn left over from the Shorty Scarf to make a matching hat. I guess I was estimating based on an average woman's head size, which is roughly 20 inches. I measured my uber grande intellectual noggin at 23 inches (no wonder I'm so smart!) and cast on the stitches needed for the gauge. It was coming along nicely, and what a bonus! It even fit!

But, alas, I do not have enough yarn to finish it. And I'm not so sure I want to order more yarn. Maybe I will just redo this in some yarn I am positive I have enough of.

Perhaps I could market this hat to the Hare Krishna's. I'm sure they have a knitting magazine made especially for them, right?

That size hole at the top would be perfect for them. No more hat head!

I've also learned I have a cowlick at the crown of my head. Jeez...when was someone going to inform me of this??

The average size woman's head is 20 in for real?! My head is too big, you said, for the huge brain!
I love the hat, sorry it's not working out, another color perhaps?

I also have a huge head, and one of my two children is similarly cursed. His explanation: "I need it to hold all my brains." Well, me too :)

I love your attention deficit knitters ring - I just joined - and have been whining about that very issue a lot just lately. Nice to have company with the whole project-o-mania thing.
