ugly hat

Wanted to post this to the list of ugly finished projects on Ravelry and it needs to be on the web--don't see a way to upload an image. I knit this exactly like a couple others that fit fine and the yarn did not appear to be different in weight. My sister chose the color, so I'm not entirely to blame. But besides not fitting, the colors are really ugly. It looks to me like the kind of thing Lucy's friend Ethel would wear over curlers.

Orchid seedlings September 5

Jeepers they are growing slowly. I supposed it's like a watched pot that never boils.

Otherwise, I've checked, cleaned up, repotted if necessary about 50 of my plants from outside--probably close to half of them. I'm limited by bee activity, which is a drag. I'm allergic, so when they start zooming around I have to come inside.
