That hat is almost as beautiful as YOU ARE! I really like the color on you! Thanks for sharing the photo with us! Good work! And it is nice of you to share your challenges with us. A complete 'run down' helps the rest of us...it gives us a 'heads up' about the pattern and the pattern challenges. Maybe then we will be able to avoid them.
It was really nice of MomWolf to post that link about "new way to approach jogless stripes"! See? If you hadn't been open about your challenges, we wouldn't have received that tip and link from MomWolf!
Anyhoo, thanks again for sharing with us! I love the hat!
