here are a couple pictures of my half-finished Hermione hat.
i acknowledge the fact that the brim is a tad bit large. i effed up my gauge in the beginning, and in my defense, i like a large brim.
ps. for any of you "twi-tards" out there (twilight fans, i myself belong to that category) i think that i look a bit like Rosalie in the first picture, what do you think?
