I threw R's birthday hat in the washer with a full load of clothes.  I had forgotten that it was mostly wool and that I should hand wash it.  It partially felted in the wash - the diameter stretched out a bit and it got quite a bit shorter - more than an inch and a half. 
The old hat is on the bottom in the photo.  The new hat is on top and is already taller than the ruined hat!  R was disappointed, but luckily I still had quite a bit of the yarn left and I'm happy that I can make it right with just a few nights work.  I was tempted to change the pattern, colors, or style a bit, but in the end am just trying to make the same hat again.

The hat should fit M3 sometime though!
