I thought I would have a ton of things to share with you today, but unfortunately I don't. I do have a few things almost complete, but I didn't want to rush them since I have one done to share today. Very vague, I know! Sorry! OH, and for those wondering, I ALMOST have that horrible mess of a skein untangled! WOOT!
You've heard a lot about my first knit hat. I had apprehension in doing it in the first place, and then once I did I realized that the needles I was using were best made to be chop sticks (if even that!) than knitting needles. They were very blunt and coarse, leading to some cursing in my house.
Despite a few snags at the top, where the yarn split due to the needle-suckage, I'm crazy happy with this hat. Next time I think I'll make it a little longer, as I like my ears nice and covered and this only comes about half way down. I wasn't sure how much room the crown of the hat would take, so I ended up short. No biggie, still very wearable! Also, you may remember that I screwed up on the ribbing, but I just swing that part in back! I won't win any awards with this hat, but I am very happy with it. You be the judge.
