I'm using Rowan Cashsoft DK RYC in Crush.  I love the color!  I have an extra ball, though, and I've no idea what I'm going to do with it yet.  I'll be posting pictures as soon as I do have it done   Wink

Late in the game, but I cast on yesterday, got halfway through the first plain round, realized I made a few mistakes, frogged, and just cast on again today during lunch and got about 1/2 inch of the ribbing done.

I cussed it (and myself) out last night on my blog, but I'm much better now.

I just started this weekend. I'm using worsted Misti Alpaca, which I hope will be big enough so that the hat isn't too small when I started. I never do a gague swatch, I'm very bad.

I thought doing the bottom ribbing on the size 4s was terrible, very delicate, but now that I'm up to the size 6s it seems better.

I was okay knitting with the beads, but as I get to the round above the beads it seems difficult to knit into the bead stitch without moving the bead from the front. I've been sort of holding them down as I go, it seems to work but feels ackward.

It is quite difficult to knit around those beads.  I'm not having a problem with that, however. . . my YOs stitches seem to have turned into dropped stitches, and I have these diagonal ladders going up the side.  It looks kind of neat, and I'd go with it, except it is obviously that in a couple of parts I have it done correctly.  I think I am going to have to frog and re-start.

I don't think my problem is with how I perform my YOs, but with how I knit those particular stitches on the next round.

Happy Spring!

That looks excellent!!!  I love the color you used; it looks great on you!

My update:  I am a couple of inches into it; it goes a little more slowly than I expected, but I am being super-careful not to drop stitches (I almost did a couple times).  I had to frog and/or unknit a few times, so this is my fourth go at it.  I love the yarn I am using so it makes it worthwhile.  Plus, it is neat seeing the pattern take shape.

OMG, I got through the ribbing and through the first beaded row and the 3 rows following. Then, I went to start the next beaded row and realized that somehow I had the wrong number of stitches (missing 4) which makes no sense because I was trying to be really careful about counting, and was using stitch markers every 10 stitches. I have no idea what the heck happened, but there was no way I could add those extra stitches without messing up the pattern (which looked fine somehow).

So I frogged it. I'm so mad. I frogged back to the ribbing, and the 4 stitches were still missing there so I frogged the whole darn thing. I'm going to start again, but I hate that sz4 needle. And this time I'm going to count count count like crazy. Grrrrrr.
