FO: Doll's summer hat
The hat's finished, now the outfit's complete. The hat was my first attempt at knitting in the round - I'd been wanting to make some hats for myself for this winter, and decided the doll was a better place to start.

I can't honestly say I love knitting itr - although it's kind of fun. I'm not sure how much advantage there is to it, if you're just doing a hat - and for stocking st, when knitting flat there is at least the variety of purling back, instead of just knitting and knitting and knitting and...but I have to admit I don't know a lot about it yet cause I just dove right into this very simple project without any playing around first, which really wasn't all that bright, lol.

I used the 2 circ's method. It's pretty nice, a bit awkward at times, but I think would work a lot more smoothly for a continental-styled knitter. I can't do that.

Now I'm going to put on just a few stitches, and play around with "what would happen if...if I did this, or that, or or or.

Anyway - the hat fits and I learned LOTS, so this whole outfit was a good project.

Thanks for looking!
