Lowly wurm

In my (possibly unblogged) effort to knit winter accessories out of season so I'm READY when it cools down again, I knit a Wurm. I'm not entirely sure that the slouchiness really suits me, but I like the color and tidy hem, it's comfortable, and seems like it'll be warm.
It looks fine from the front...

...but decidedly odd laid out flat.
If I knit another of these at some point, I want to add another decrease round or two before fastening off. I think there are too many stitches cinched up at the end, making the top of the hat both more ruffly and — apologies — sphincter-evoking than it would be if I had my druthers.

that shade of eggplant is so pretty on you.

and i love your color-blocked book shelves! i organized my books by color, but i only have one measly little shelf, so not much of an impact. :-/

I think its wonderful - not at all sphincterlike.

So cute! I know what you mean about the slouchiness. You have a very classic face and haircut, so I'd immediately think of something very 1920s cloche for you. However, I think you pull off this hat very well.
