Didn't I tell you that I'd jinx my Selbu Modern by talking about how every one I'd seen on Rav was just perfect?  didn't I?  well it worked.  I hope I'm happy now!  hrumph!  I looove it color-wise, but nice color does not a well fitting hat make.  It's just too slouchy.  too loosey-goosey.  This picture just doesn't even show how slouchy it is - I couldn't capture the crapitude!  I kept thinking that it seemed like my stitches ought to be tighter.  I used size 2 needles because that's what I used for another fingering weight beret I made.  I think I'm much looser in colorwork though.  apparently.  I guess it isn't throw away horrible, but it isn't quite what I was hoping for.  Oh, yes, I did try to shrink it but the damn superwash I used is sort of made to not shrink!  ugh!  once when I want my wool to shrink!
