whale Hat
This is my first attempt at using DPNs...man, that was hard...I really want to try and master them.

The pattern can be found from a Canadian co call Cabin fever. Check it out on line.

Great job! Don't worry, I think most people find DPNs intimidating!

You're not really going to make some poor kid wear that are you?

Just kidding, it looks great! Good job.

Ahahahahaha! That is the cutest! I was wondering what "whale hat" would look like as I waited for the pic to load. I thought maybe an intarsia whale. But the whale tail is awesome!

I have been trying to learn DPNs too, and not having a whole lot of luck. I always feel like I don't have enough fingers or hands or something.

That is really cute. I hated dpn at first but after knitting socks they don't bother me at all.
