I am almost done with the hat. My circs are being a pian in the rear, (snagging yarn when you put back on the needle from the cable) so I just used straight needles and it worked out fine. All I have to do is stitch the seam tonight and I will be done. I will try to post pics soon. I am not on the computer as much as I would like to be.

I can't wait to see it! Thanks for joining me! What kind of yarn did you use? Did you change the guage or stitch count?
  I made the second one in a size 8 needle, with 94 stitches. The same yarn. It came out just a bit looser, which is what I wanted for Uncle Joe.
  We haven't bought yarn for the sweater. I will probably put it on the shelf 'till there's money for it.
  Meanwhile, I started a white sweater out of Caron, Simply Soft yarn. I'm keeping notes, so I'll post it later, when it's finished. The white one is going to be shaped with "darts", no side seams, and only 4-5" past the waist. Three quarter sleeves, and open in front with a crochet edging all around. No other pattern in the knit. May sound boring, but it's a wardrobe staple item I can't live without. Hope it's worth showing to everyone!

So, I finished this last week and love it. I made it with Quinnechticut Yarn that a friend had given me. This is my first time actually posting a pic so I hope it works... if not I will need a tute from someone!

The Sweater made out of the Caron Simply Soft sounds great too! Let me know how your progress goes on that.

Happy Knitting!

Well, that kinda worked, but the pic is sideways and all stretched out. Wonky looking. The real thing doesn't look like that!

How awesome! Your hat is perfect! The yarn is quite similar. I don't see anything wrong with your picture. This is so cool to see your work... and to know that I started it.
Now, if you want, you can take the same idea and chart out another cable pattern. Just add a couple stitches if you need to balance the pattern.
All you need is to divide up your "multiple OF" count by however many stitches you're using, and add the ones needed to balance count. (PLUS the 2 selvedge stitches, for straight needles)

Also... I'm pleased you noticed my Caron Sweater. I am going to post a finished pic in the completed projects board, afterwards. Just have the sleeves left! For anyone interested, the work in progress post is here...
It's in the 50 projects board, page 98  I tried to post a link, but it didn't work.
This one is going to have to take a little more work to write a pattern... It's the darts that were hard to keep straight. But, if anyone's interested, I'll work on it.
