Thanks to all for your comments- It's important to have the appreciation of fellow knitters.
I'm working on a sweater. I just cut the steeks and bound off the shoulders. I knit up the neck band and was not happy with it, so I frogged it back and redid it.
I am planning to hem the neckband on my current sweater project. I have not done this before.
I was just looking at Jamieson traditional Shetland yarn online in the weight used in Fair Isle knitting (they call this yarn Spindrift), and I nearly gagged at the price.
I finally recieved my Merino Style yarn from Knitpicks. I bought this yarn because I wanted to knit my next sweater with a finer yarn on smaller needles.
You got it.
This is the hat
it came out flat
the numbers worked
and that is that.
Thank you all for your responses to my flat hat dilemma. I am presently trying to calculate how much duct tape to wrap around my head to keep it from splattering my monitor!
I am working on a hat while waiting for my yarn delivery from Knitpicks. I would like it to have a flat top.
I dipped into my oddballs bag and knit up this version of the 70's stocking cap. I used remnants of some Aussiewool yarn. I made it up as I knit, so there is no pattern.
