My First FO Knit in the Round :)


I am wanting to knit the sweater on the cover of January's Creative Knitting Mag - I think it's called "Knit it Down". But I wanted to try knitting in the round first on something simple, like a hat. I wasn't sure about joining the round or switching to DPNs, etc. So I knitted the Super Easy Child's Hat from a blog called Dropped a Stitch. It took me no time (started and finished this afternoon) and I am so pleased. HEre it is ...

With my 2-year-old modeling:


and the shot of the top/decreases:


I am SO pleased with how it turned out! Thanks for letting me share and TFL!
