Hello all, I received my Knit Picks harmony wood interchangeable s (which I love, love, love, them) and pretty much got the magic loop thing down, using it to make this hat right down to the last 4 stitches, and working on legwarmers also doing a drop stitch scarf, but that is on straight needles, but I'm having trouble for some reason keeping track of how many rows, on the scarf sometimes I have 4 garter stitch rows and sometimes 3 rows in between the drop stitch. I don't know why, I can see the rows clearly,,, its a mystery.
The hat pattern is here: I used a size 9 needle because I used pound of love baby yarn, and although its 4 ply its on the thin side, Its a surprise thank you gift for my husband who got me the new needles. And my first finished project, whoo hooo

The legwarmers are here. I have had many start overs with them as first I tried straight needles and then were to small as I had used the wrong size needle, now I'm on the right track.

the scarf is a variation of study of patterns I have started over many times.
Last I want to thank everyone here this forum is so very helpful a great resource I have learned so much. :muah:
