I'm already trying to decide what to do with that partial skein! Most likely it will make an appearance in my beekeeper's quilt.
Modeling the hat...Okay...off topic, but I fully admit that I edited this photo to remove the bags under my eyes. Lord, I thought I was getting enough sleep until I saw the photos of this hat. Thank goodness for retouching! I so hate modeling for these photos because I only see all my insecurities. My long nose, crooked not white-like-I-would-love-them-to-be teeth, dark bags, double chin, and on and on. Yet, when I think about everything that my un-perfect face and fluffy body has been through over the last five years, I'm just happy to be able to knit, live, and be happy. At least, that is what I try to remember when I look in the mirror, at the scale, or at photos. I try...then I open the photo editor!
