Sensitive Knitwear

I knit two of these for the holidays - a dark chocolate one for Miss Margaret and this one for myself.

It's called the "Cupcake Hat" and you can get the free pattern here from Chile con Yarne.
This is the 100 st cast on version, knit with 3" of ribbing and then almost 9" of length before beginning the decreases at the crown. I wanted mine to come down all the way over my ears, Miss Baby's is only about 7 1/2" long before the decreases and looks a bit more like a tasty cupcake.

I laughed out loud when I saw the snapshot below come out of my camera.
As someone who never camera whores in the mirror - this terribly wistful portrait of a matron in a hat is hysterical. One might even think I was one of those terribly sensitive bloggers with an overabundance of evolved feelings and deep insights.

I know - it's much more likely to find a photo of me with cheese doodles in my ears than a soft focus dream-scape.
