This is my first ever hat and first project with dpns, and I'm quite excited about it. It makes me feel like I'm doing some serious knittin' :mrgreen: .

I am loving that yarn!What is it?The hat looks great too, I miss that great feeling of mastering a new technique I think I need to try something new.

That looks great!

BTW.. Flikr allows you to post pictures here. Just try to keep them at 800 pixels or less on the longest side. I think people get more comments and views when photos are posted vs links.

The hat's lookin' mighty fine. I've yet to try dpns, but I'm itching to begin, and you make it look so easy and exquisite!

Oh my gosh, THAT IS ONE GORGEOUS HAT !
Good for you ! My first attempt with dpns turned out to fit a cabbage patch doll ! (It was intended for a 3 yr old !)

I LOVE THAT YARN !
