to show off the the new misti alpaca handpainted chunky i wound up a skein and cast on a 18 seconds to sunrise hat. unfortunately my gague was off and it was pulling tight even on my little head. i just ripped it out and i'll give it another go with a 6.5mm needle, 5.5mm for 5 rows of ribbing to start. .... i'm thinking of adding a few sts in the body to make it wider, more beret like. please help me, i have a very serious problem!
the parisian beret is fersnikety knitting (aka i have to pay attention to the pattern & where i am in it) so i left it at home today. the jo sharp silk road aran is REALLY nice to work with, lurvly!
