Waffle Cone Slouchy Hat

So yesterday I decided I have too much yarn (some of it was a gift from a friend who’s moving tomorrow) and I wanted to attack it.  Whenever dealing with only a little bit of yarn you run into the problem of what you can make. Do you have enough? Do any of the colors and textures compliment each other so you can combine them?

Luckily I found this pattern on Ravelry.

Unfortunately I made a noob mistake. I forgot to check my gauge. You’d think after a year of doing this I’d know better. It doesn’t even fit my 9yr old’s head right! Luckily I have friends with toddlers or I’ll donate it to the local pregnancy crisis center.

Thankfully my second attempt was better. That one I’ll keep. 🙂
