This hat should have been finished last night but there was an unfortunate incident with a renegade DPN that lead to a very unhappy frogging session. No more aluminum DPNs for me. Tongue Happily I resurected the hat tonight while enjoying the new X-Men movie. My brother now thinks I'm nuts for knitting during the movie.

Cool hat! Congratulations on designing it yourself too. Not everyone is courageous enough to do that.

I design knitwear patterns and have to be careful not to scare away less confident knitters. It's a shame too - there is so much more that they could do.  Sad

It is GREAT to see knitters taking matters into their own hands. Especially with DP needles - you are indeed brave.  Smiley

Thanks! I like to keep a simple hat on the needles to knit while I'm doing other things or really tired (lace + tv = attack of frogs). Since I can't just keep knitting the same darn hat or two I figured it best to start designing my own. Smiley For this one it was more about the yarn. I was excited about how well they matched and didn't have enough of either to make anything much larger. Haven't been in the mood to line a bag or anything so a hat it is.

I'm still a relatively new knitter (just under a year) and haven't had the money to venture into clothing yet so I've started designing accessories here and there. I can't wait to take on tops and such but the budget says I have to advance to socks next instead. Wink
I think I'm asking for nothing but copious amounts of fabulous yarn next Christmas. I figure since I rarely knit for myself at all that Mom would totally benefit because then it'd come right back to her as neat little tops! Unless I get enough yarn to make myself some pants. I'm keeping the pants. Wink

BTW, "needle art adventure packs" is the best craft kit name ever! Hehe. I love your sig line too. Being a little ADHD I use the "oooh, look, something shiny" line all the time.

Well, meriellyn, you are my kind of knitter. A new knitter and already designing!

Just hang in there and keep knitting and the yarn will come. I remember when I first learned to knit (eons eons ago) that the cost of yarn was definitely a limiting factor but that smooths out with time.

Thanks for having a look at my site Smiley It is, like all websites, overdue for an update. I've got some new projects and such that could stand to be posted both there and here.

Keep posting your projects! I want to see them develop  Wink

Eeeh, I tend to stay away from dpn's.  Why put up the hassel with those when one can keep it conviently on a circular knitting needle?  O_o

Thanks. Smiley

I did most of it on a circ but after enough decreases I had to switch to the DPNs. I decreased down to 7st so staying on my 16" circ wasn't an option. Plus I wanna try socks soon so it's good practice. Smiley
