Well! The kitty colorwork hat turned out pretty cute, although it ended up more of a slouchy hat than the beanie I’d imagined. I attribute this to three factors: 1) there were no modeled photos in the pattern, 2) I’m the first one to knit this project other than the designer, and 3) my gauge may be a bit looser than the patten called for. Here’s the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-kitties-hat

You may notice that the ribbing is poofy. This really bothers me, so I’m going to snip and unravel, and re-knit the ribbing (K2P2 instead of K1P1). I’ve never tried this unravelling the beginning and re-doing it, so wish me luck!
