The hat has to be completely dry so I can mail it.
But look! Done!
PS. Thanks, Fujiyamamama, for the encouragement. I fixed that dropped stitch in the hat. Seems I only dropped half of it.... but it surely was the active half!

I washed it, to test my theory that a wash would add more slouch.
It was good I washed it.
Yes, it relaxed.
Yes, that safety pin is holding a brioche stitch that I seemed to have dropped. I managed to knit something else above it to keep the pattern up.
Washing an unknown dropped stitch caused a tittle laddering. Whee.
I have to figure out how to fix it without undoing the whole hat. I am too sick this weekend to figure it out.
This is how it goes. Stash happens. And I'm pretty thankful for it, what with this having been a lousy weekend, full of temperatures and coughing and tea and only enough concentration to work in a big square of knitting.
