Congratulations. It's a beehive!

I made the "Bzzz Hat for Queen Bees" from the Stitch 'N Bitch Nation book. It's 100% pure new wool and sooooo warm - just what I need in this weather. I had to alter the pattern slightly as casting on 100 stitches seemed way too big, so I tried starting with 80 stitches and it's a perfect fit. I changed the decreases accordingly and worked in pattern until 30 stitches were left on the needles to make up for the height.

What's really setting off this hat are the cute little bee buttons I found on ebay.
