This was actually my second go at this pattern (no pics of the flop). The first time, I was displeased by the color choice and my gauge, so I dug out these bright colors for my do-over and paid closer attention to the tension of my knitting. I made the small size, since I was still a bit unsure about how the result would look. But I like it! It looked a bit odd on my head, but I think it suits my grandma just fine.
