Jan its looking great! I love the color.
Everytime Ive started a ribbed hat in one size needle and moved to a bigger for the next part I have never been happy with it. Either the wearer folds their hat at a place that looks silly to me (hypercritical perhaps) or I end up wishing I had just stayed with a smaller needle size for the entire project. But if the decreases call for a new size needle it looks fine, but I'm a hataholic knitter and have never been able to switch sizes from brim to head and make it look smoothe.
There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to laugh and a time to cry, but there never seems to be enough time to knit.-Anon. (or to visit KH!)
