I finished the Lemon Hat! It took quite a bit of tweeking, but I got it!
[INSERT: Happy Dance]
There's nothing like that sense of accomplishment (and relief) when it finally comes together. I really would have hated to see this one end up in the UFO pile! (for non yarnsters .. that's UnFinishedObject) At some point in the process of making it, it either became a labor of love or something I became hyperfocused on that I HAD to finish. OR maybe it was a combo of both. But ... whatever it was .. here's the final result :)
