Well, I bit the bullet and cast on the Peak Brim Flare Crown Star Top Hat (link to ravelry) this weekend. I'd read the instructions and the tip sheets, started watching a Craftsy class, and had totally freaked myself out. So I decided to just start knitting and see what happened.

The hats are done! It seemed like a good opportunity to take our second picture: It was a grey day, so I didn't get to take any other pictures, but wanted to get this taken! It's going to be a busy week around here, but we've got some fun stuff going on.
