After it got to be much bigger than usual and there was still thread left, I decided I would actually make two, each a little shorter than the pattern calls for, but both a decent size because they are out of larger thread. I didn't stiffen them because they're stiff enough with the size 10 thread, I didn't have my stiffener, and I left one as a thank-you for the person I stayed with on my business trip.

Problems: Only having more thread than my original plan accounted for!
