i wanted to see the effects of knit picks' sock landscape, so i made a hat for my bf. here it is (big on me of course)... striped in a swirly kind of way, and started getting a bit irregular up top with the decreases, but you can't really see it  Grin

btw, can a person block something so that the laddering effect that is caused by using dpns goes away?

It looks great, and I do think after a couple of washings, by hand preferably, the "laddering" will go away.
good luck!

Another way of avoiding laddering is to occassionally, while you are knitting, knit a stitch or two from the next needle so that the dpn junction isn't the same place throughout the whole hat.
