Sally finished her hat. (Isis modeling Sally's hat.)
Karan finished her hat (Early on Karen had this much done and had never knitted before)
(Kim knitting on her son's hat)
and Kim almost did.
I had some rows done. When I got home I put it away. Later in the week I showed it to my husband and he thought it had promise. During the week I knitted away on it. Later I found out that I had made up a few knitting stitches. But it worked and the hat was finished. Only problem, a little too tight. So I started another. Meanwhile I decided to get some circular bamboo needles (Isis recommends) These were a great improvement. After awhile the needles get very slick and the yarn just flies off and makes the whole process a real pleasure.
Hat number two got finished that second week. It was great, colorful and fun to wear but perhaps a little too short.
Now with my circular bamboo needles I embarked on hat three. I ran out of yarn halfway through and picked up some chenille I had around for the top. For size it came out perfectly. If you don't look too closely, you don't see the holes, mistakes and made up stitches. But to wear it, it feels wonderful and is rather stylish I think.
My three hats. From left to right beginner hat--- to the one I like the best.
Many thanks to Isis our magical teacher.
