Phew! Your boy is safe and you have got power… now you can enjoy the knitting! Unfortunately I cannot see the pictures but I am sure it is a lovely hat.  If it is a bit on the big side, you can always felt it (provided it is wool not acrylic). I have felted a couple of hats and they turned out really nice.
I can't see the pictures either.  :rollseyes:  don't know what I've been doing wrong lately trying to upload photos.

What an accomplishment, ILuvLucy! Most people knit a simple scarf for their first knitted project. You have completed a hat which involved a lot of different knitting skills, not the least of which is magic loop. (I, too, cannot see the pictures and I'm honestly not sure why they aren't showing.)

I agree with Milla about possibly felting it if it's made of wool. Might as well go all out on learning new skills with this one hat. :)

Glad to hear that your mother's intuition was right and your DS was safe. Simply amazed at the amount of snow that you got. And maybe a little envious.  :D Now you can settle in and start something new. What will your next project be?
