I just need to complain a little.



They seriously kick my ass every time. Centering everything up, making it even as much as possible on both sides. No one really understands how much of a pain in the ass it takes to make these!



This one took me 6 weeks, and that was because the first one was a miserable flop and I had to take it out and do it again.



Now my cousin wants one before he flies home to Australia.



He leaves July 18th....oh crap!!

It looks awesome! Shouldn't it just be two sections though? Is that possible? I commend your skills. :)

It actually is 2 whole sections.



Each side has an icord that's knit about 200 inches that is then time consumingly sewn on to look like that pattern.

Why do people give u such short notice all the time? Do they think you don't need to sleep, eat, or watch your children?!??

Well this is my Etsy stalker guy. I usually give about 3-4 weeks till ship time. If I get to close to that date, it could come out looking like crap. Some people give me far more time, like this guy and it came out looking really well.



My cousin on the other hand, is my cousin. And he lives in Australia and I don't necessarily ship there because it's $12 a lb to ship there. He told me on June 28th. I have the base hat done, just need to make the brains.



It does get stressful though with the kids during the summer. My time to complete something goes up about 2x as much.
