Hey everyone! I'm new here and pretty new to knitting as well. I taught myself about a week and a half ago and have already made two hats (each one progressively better than the previous! YEY!)
This was my first, you can't see all the holes...but trust me there are plenty! I didn't really know what "dropping a stich" meant to the finished product when I made this one:http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y18/BarrenMind/IMG_4683.jpg
And I made this one for my nephews Horton Hears a Who birthday party. This is my little boy Noah (who will be ONE in a week! Noooooooo!) in his Dr Seuss duds:http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y18/BarrenMind/new%20album/IMG_4990.jpg
this hat came out MUCH better...my my join was still pretty sloppy
So now I'm working on a pair of longies for my cloth diapered little guy, and I know it's a bit ambitious, but I really think I can do it! I started last night but HATED the needles I bought. They were circular Balene II needles by Boyes. The points kept bending and I finally ended off just cutting the point off, but I still hated them. I think I might buy some bamboo ones but wanted some ideas of what your favorite needles are, and any tips you might have for me!
