On a scale of fail to fail, where do I rank....

Oh, that's right...in the FAIL category.

Okay so, the eye of the tiger pattern isn't quite done. I've been very busy working on many projects and working the work thing. Also, there has been sleeping, of the sleeping variety.

Since I have been fail on that, I thought I would post something here that Jen of lovely Sewhooked fame suggested.

If you are a Twilight fan, this hat *should* look familiar from the first movie.

If you aren't a Twilight fan, this hat is AWESOME!!!





I used an H hook (but you can use an I hook) and Red Heart yarn.

No, I don't have a gauge for it. It's a quick pattern, so if it's too big or too small, get a different hook and try it again.
