Knitting with dpns is so gratifying...
This is my first ever hat and first project with dpns, and I'm quite excited about it. It makes me feel like I'm doing some serious knittin' .

I think the yarn looks perty spiffy, though its not nice wool or anything.

Just had to share this happyness

That looks great!

BTW.. Flikr allows you to post pictures here. Just try to keep them at 800 pixels or less on the longest side. I think people get more comments and views when photos are posted vs links.
