I realize that I have only knitted about two inches, but this is exciting for me. After all this time making an endless series of scarves, and one sock...I have made a second hat. It proves the first hat was not a fluke, and that I can actually make hats in general. It is a bit bigger than the last, definately covers me ears, but I think it is still much too tight for my big head. I have a buddy that might want it, and if not...there are always girls that I can give it to.
