So I finally got around to knitting that hat for myself, using the same pattern as for Dan's hat. It's a tiny bit short, but I just shorten the brim when I wear it. Nice and snug, too. A bit itchy, but it's wool.
I also tried to knit a small toy kitty for Dan, but it didn't turn out like a thought it would. The feet suck because I apparently am awful at sewing using yarn. But Dan and Nero loved it.
