It's peer pressure I tell ya. I wanted to try the Silver's palindrome hat. It was my first try at cables and I must say I'm in love. I think I'll add cables to everything I knit from here out! I didn't have the proper size needles in anything but straights so I knit it flat and seamed up the back. I also got a little rushed toward the end and didn't follow the decrease directions, but I'm very happy with it. It was a terrific pattern!
It's for me, but Samantha, her corny self, modeled for me
