Having to read, "slip two stitches from needle and hold in front, knit two stitches, knit two from cable needle" was reduced to a line across four stitches.

If you use post its or a magnetic board to keep track, it's a breeze, plus you can make sure you're in the right place because you can see what stitch should be below the one you're working. It reminds me of color by number.
That description makes it a lot less scary--and color by number I can do!! Thanks!

Thanks everyone! You sure know how to make a girl blush and feel very special
I finished the hat this evening and have some photos to post. It was much easier than I aniticipated :D although, if I do another I won't used spiral decreasing on the crown. I have another pattern picked out for the wrist cuff for the fingerless gloves for this ensemble, but I think they will look nice, I will cast on for them tomorrow....I have also been sketching some ideas for a clutch with wooden handles using this pattern...we'll see how that one goes

This is a shot of the side with the leaf ends sewn onto the St st portion of the hat


Here is the front/back/...the rest of the hat, in other words...LOL!


Hat & Scarf Combo




This is more of the true color...I'm still learning about this new camera !
