It's Hard to Photograph the Back of One's Own Head

Finally finished another knitting project, though! This is the first thing I've ever knit without an exact pattern. I used the twisted rib stitch from the scarf I made a few months ago, and just kind of wung the rest. I wish I could have figured out how to continue the ribbing all the way to the top, but instead I switched to a plain knit stitch when I had to make the decreases. It's a smidge big, though, and I'm contemplating shrinking it up a bit in some hot water since it will most likely stretch more after a few wearings. If I can find another skein of this yarn, I'll make some mittens to match.
