Thanks! Yeah i want to move there too! that's why we vavactioned to get a feel for it. I love it. But i also recently found out that i LOVE providence Rhode Island. I would have never thought i would like it there. I'm a flight attendant and i had a layover there and wow! It was awesome. so now it's like between both of them. Though, i really didn't get to explore out of the city or providence and i LOVE maine's coast and nature. So i think portland still has one up.
Good job! I just tried to knit up a basic hat and it came out terribly so I understand how not-simple a hat can be!
I love the yarn you used here too. So pretty. Also I feel the need to express my jealousy over your vacation in Portland, Maine. I really want to move up there!
