Here's a hat I'm working on. Since I took this pic (I didn't get around to posting it, I've gotten about 4.5" past the end of the ribbing and I've only a few feet away from the end of the first skein.
The yarn is Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed Charcoal, #10 needles, and the basic hat pattern is from Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns
You may note that my "right side" is on the inside of the "tube". I know I can flip it inside-out.. should I do that, and knit on the "outside"? Or do I continue as-is and flip it when I'm all done? (Or does it matter?)
