Thanks .. I actually did what the instructions suggested.. Red heart yarn gold, ranch red, and carrot. I had asked my brother whether he would prefer "good" yarn, or an authentic 'crappy' look.... he wanted authentic so I was happy to go with red heart... I actually surpised at how much I like it. In fact, Im wearing the first one now... did most of his last night (with the sizing corrections).



And birdy... I think our cats would have fun. Im surprised you cats have no knitted items!... my cats always get my cast offs (back in my crochet days too when I was just swatching to check out new yarns)...but I guess that has to do with my aversion to frogging

hehe I could do that... but I like the tight look... that and the fact that Im just building my needle collection and the size 11's I bought for htis hat are the biggest I have (I hate big needles... at least big straight needles... I dont mind big cicular ones that much)

Circular totally! When I found out I could make a hat using only a knit stitch and not having to turn my work, I totally jumped on that !... with my first hat I had to move to DPNs at the end...but its not necessary with the jayne hat because it doesnt decrease so much



Thank you all!

Excellent work and CAYUTE babycat. I love cuddly babycats like that.
