Hi everyone,

I just recently finished this hat using circular needles for the first time. It is a pattern I saw on the tv show Knit One Purl Two. (I think that's the name of the show :roflhard: )

I can't wait to use circular needles again!! :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone for your kind words about my hat and my daughter. I kid you not when I say she has stolen it from me. It now hangs at the foot of her bed! I'm going to have to knit another one a bit smaller for her so I can get mine back :rofling:

brendajos, the yarn is Noro silk garden shade #34. I just loved this color combo when I saw it on the show.

That is an awesome hat ;) I wonder...did they take that show off the air? I mean I saw it the other day but it was a repeat. I quite liked it.

Angela,
I just started knitting three weeks ago today and I saw that Knit 1 Purl 2 show a few times and then it vanished. I wrote to DIY and they said that they are only on periodically. Gosh! They said it would be on again for I think they said four days started Nov. 4th.
The 'French' gal is a tad hard to understand but I did like her show. I found Knitty Gritty a few weeks ago too.

I don't always knit in the round but the newest thing for me is that I use circular needles for everything I knit and I love them! :XX:

Awesome :cheering: - hat and your daughter looks so pretty. Well done!!!! I am inspired by those of you who say you prefer knitting on the round - I am about to attempt it for the first time and feel a little intimidated!!!

You'll kick yourself for being intimidated. It really isn't hard--in some ways it's easier than regular knitting--certainly faster, and best of all--NO seaming! :cheering:

Thanks guys.

dustinac, those shows you listed that are coming in November are the same ones that I had Tivo'd this past month. The hat I knitted is the same one they will be showing again.

cheetahcalledchloe, first of all, I love your user name!! I was very intimidated knitting on circular needles too. My daughter saw a pattern for a skirt using Berroco suede. I had some other suede yarn I used for a purse for her and so I thought I would try it. HATED IT. I think because that yarn has no give, I was knitting very tight and I was using bamboo circs and it was too hard to knit. Well when I saw the show for the hat, it really looked so easy, that I had to try it. I was looking for metal circs for about a week but could not find the right length. I had to try this hat on bamboo ones. Ugh, But you know, this yarn has give and the knitting went really fast. I now want to try out the skirt my daughter wants.

That is a great hat! And I agree with all the above posts, your daughter is gorgeous! I thought that was the picture from the pattern at first. She's going to be a heartbreaker!
