Here's the Sea Urchin hat made from Noro Kureyon. I didn't get around to blocking it until yesterday, which turned out just fine as the Central Park Hoodie was blocked which freed up the mini basketball again. The Sea Urchin hat is now stretched over it doing its 72hr thing.
I'm interested to see how the top turns out. I was quite disappointed with the colorway when it came to the top as the color was not solid enough to really make the star-shape pop out well. If I make another, I think I'd have to join in further along the second skein of yarn just to get a better continuation of color for the star. It also seems a little strange to be decreasing to 15 sts and then finishing. This makes the top very bunched up when you finish knitting, but is probably why the blocking stage is so important. You can see from the pictures that once the hat was stretched out over the ball, the top flattened down more.
Should be ready to wear this by Monday.
