Hey all, this is my first post and my first piece of knitting that wasn't a swatch.

I'm 18 and just started knitting, and this hat is a pattern from the book Stitch 'n Bitch, which combined with this site, is where I learned to knit. I chose my own color design for this piece, the original uses too many reds and yellows for my taste. ;)

[Yes, that's me and yes, that's my hat. :)]

Thank you though, I appreciate the compliment, and the splash of southern drawl. :)

Hey all, this is my first post and my first piece of knitting that wasn't a swatch.

...took me 6 hours!


So you're saying your first knitting project included knitting in the round and color changes??!! :notworthy:

I've been knitting for over a year and I just completed my first hats and color changes. I'm in awe!!

That looks great!! You did a really good job on it- 6 hours? Well, for your first actual FO, it could be worse, LOL- and you will get faster quickly.

I like the colors you chose better than reds and yellows too.

Welcome to KH!

Well, I've been practicing and learning all the knitting techniques with swatches first: stockinette, ribbing, color changing, cables, etc..

And to let you in on a secret, it's not knit in the round. It's knit flat and then sewn together with a mattress stitch - it was a great first hat pattern for me. :)

Looks great! The first hat I knit was too big for the recipient--a toddler, but yours looks like a perfect fit.

Great job! That was my first hat too, but I made it in all black as my DBF isn't into a lot of colour.
