Eek, my left index finger is all blistered from those k2tog TBL's, although it is getting slightly easier now. And my cheap yarn is squeaking and annoying the hell out of my bf Roll Eyes lol (I'm stash busting yey!). On the plus side it's looking pretty damn hot.



You know...the daft thing is that I look awful in hats, never wear them. And yet I'm up at half four in the morning masochistically knitting away at a hat that I'll probably never wear, in a yarn that'll be far too warm to wear for the next five months anyway. Weird. Tongue

i'm the same way . I make hats like a maniac but don't wear them because of my pony tail.

I cast on yesterday for the Spiderman 2 hat with some cheap leftover Red Heart yarn.  The K2G and P2G are killing me too.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help! I get it now. But I think I knit too tightly too, it's killing my fingers too Sad I think I'll start again and try to knit a little looser. I'm determined to get it right on my left over practice yarn before I endanger my beautiful new red yarn!

Take your time with the togs. At the risk of confusing you guys, here's how I handle this many togs without stressing my fingers: after the yarn over, I press my right index finger down so it clamps the yarn over down and is up towards the tip of the needle. Then I move the point of the needle down into at least the first loop. While doing this, I edge both loops I'm going to knit/purl together towards the very tip of the left-hand needle. This gives you more room to fit the right-hand needle through. I noticed I usually scoot my clamped down right index finger up and secure the loops when knitting (but not purling) while continuing to go through the normal knit motion.

Hope that helps you guys out more than it confuses you. Wink  Really, I just developed this technique naturally with a lot of practice.

I never really saw what the hype was about this hat until I watched Elizabethtown last night and man I want one bad! hehe ... I'm going to be casting on for it as soon as I press play on the movie

I made this for Raindrops in a swap:


I'm in! Anyone have yarn suggestions to make a lighter weight hat I can still wear in the summer?

I used almost two skeins of Cantata Cotton Crepe DK, Colour #9893, two needles -US 4, 16" circular for the ribbing, US 9, 16" circular for the rest of the hat. It worked really well, and since it is 100% mercerized cotton, it should work for warmer weather.

I'm a very slow knitter but I started this last night and I'm now to the row where I switch needles (I'm doing the Elizabethtown hat)
