I think I've seen the switching technique (technique "b"?
) before but I couldn't remember it so I just plugged along like I had good sense!
The hat's coming along really well and I can't wait to finish it. I'm so excited about actually finishing a knit project. I started teaching myself a few months ago. My grandmother taught me how to crochet but for some reason her knitting lessons never stuck. I've started several scarves but I just couldn't get into them. This hat is going to be adorable (but I hope that it's not as big as it looks right now...I was too ready to start to do a swatch!).
Thank you so much for all the suggestions and help. I will definitely be back!!!
