Default While I'm Waiting For My Batting To Arrive

so I can finish my current quilting project, I knitted myself a hat. This yarn has bits of sparklies in it and I've been wanting to use it since I bought it a couple of years ago. I used a free pattern I found on Ravelry.

Very cute! Never could get into knitting or crocheting especially after I got married. Long story. Yours looks great.

Cute hat - knitting and crochet are beyond my capabilities. My mother was great at both but I could not learn, it always seemed too complicated.

That looks great and exactly what I've been looking for! Did you use circular needles or DP ones? The pattern I found calls for DP needles and I can't manage that for the life of me. And I really need a new knit hat.

The only way I can "knit" a hat is to use the round Knifty Knitter.

it looks great, and i'll bet it's nice and cozy warm... i love knitted items. i gave away all of my needles when i moved, though, because of arthritis. now i just knit by machine.

Cute hat. I still knit every once in a while. Nothing complicated but sometimes I like the feel of yarn in my hands

great job. started when i was 3 on my grandmas lap. all I could do was go back and forth.
Not much has changed in these 50 ish years. I can go back and forth, and that's
a trick at time. I need to find someone who will knit me pink angora mittens. does anyone know someone who can.

that hat is priceless and so neat and sharp looking. enjoy it.
