FO: My first successful hat! The size is perfect (amazing, since my gauge hadn't stabilized and it was really just a guess), but the length isn't long enough to cover my ears. I should have extended the ribbed portion much longer so it could have a deeper fold.
Nevertheless, I learned a lot. It's the first project I did in-the-round on a circular needle. I seem to have found how I like to hold the yarn, and have a more reliable tension. And I know my size.
Fear the Sock Monster! RAWR!
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. ~Friedrich Nietzsche Double Pointed - a knitting blog
I'm actually cheating a bit in the photo... I folded the front of the hat up too much, and tilted the hat forward. If folded evenly, I only have about an inch of "brim" all the way around. Not enough.
Yes, I like the color too! The wool market in Seoul is more or less for garment industry buyers, so if you want to buy just one skein for learning, there are limited choices. I'll have a lot more choice when I'm willing to buy in packs of 4 or 8 skeins... I'm gonna try the sweater knitalong soon.
