Thank you! It just takes practice and a hat is the easiest way to get that IMO. I started out by just playing with patterns on hats. It's not perfect..there is a spot toward the beginning where I wasn't paying attention I guess and it got a little wonky, but the rest of it's pretty good. You just have to stretch the stitches on the right needle out when you do the color that is stranding across to give you some play in the strand. It can stretch on someone's head now and not be tight. I think I'd feel comfortable doing it on a sweater now, but it's a long time coming. Fun learning though!
