My sister in law wrote up a baby hat pattern and she wanted me to knit it and make sure the pattern made sense, etc, before she made it available to sell on Ravelry.
I started with the pink yarn I wanted to use for a hat for my daughter and that was not working well, and there wasn't enough yardage besides, so I frogged it and started over with some teal Skacel I acquired from a garage sale.

The yarn is thicker than pattern requirements. It is producing a much larger hat but I told her I'd make an official test knit, with correct yarn weight and needle size, once I finished the dry run.

So about the needle situation. I ordered new needles at the end of June. They arrived four sizes too small. I double checked my original order before complaining just to make sure it wasn't my mistake. After contacting the company and going back and forth for over a week without any resolve, I finally told them to forget about replacement and ordered a needle from Etsy.
