Wow! You made this as your first hat? I am impressed!

Good luck!
I love your Koolhaas. Your color choice is a fave of mine. I do agree with you "The directions are clearly written. You just have to trust them...that it will work out." When I allowed myself to trust the directions, everything came out perfectly.

I'm laughing at your comments about MY comments. I made that hat three years ago. I'm a much more experienced knitter now. Isn't it interesting to go back and see how far we've traveled?
