New Hat

Well my old red hat finally died so I thought I would have a go at knitting a new one :) My first hat and the first time on a circular needle and double pointeds. Boy those double pointeds were hard when it got small. I managed to drop the stitches off a needle and made a hash at picking them up but got there in the end :) It has a VERY large bobble :) just for fun, not necessarily for comfort LOL ! My Christmas pressie to me !

What's the old saying? "It's not the size of your bobble, it's how well you wear it?" Something like that.

Hat looks good.

Nice bobble!

Delightful! I'm mad for the whole effect: the blue is sumptuous and the pom pom (bobble?) is really artfully done.

Yup...

Everyone's gonna want to fondle that 'bobble' :)

It makes the hat and I love the stripe in there too!

I can't believe the size of that bobble...I don't care for them myself but it really does seem to make this cap enjoyable. One good thing - it will be hard to lose. Nice knitting. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

On Topic

Great design, fiber, and execution. Excites all the senses!

Off Topic

Great shape, image and ownership of the look. Taste, smell and touch beg for more!

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Thank you, NYB, for putting that off topic into just the right words! Wroof! -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
