I can't believe it, I've finished my first real knitted item (as opposed to simple ipod socks). I had a friend teach me to use dpn's then set about making a beanie for to keep my bald head warm this winter. It only took me a couple of days to make & I even managed to fix my stuff-ups (instead of frogging & starting over every time). I'm already a third of the way through my next one.

excuse the dodgy pic.

Very nice Smiley My first hat has holes near the bottom because I kept accidentially yarning over (used a lot in lace knitting because it makes grrreat holes...sigh, good if you want them there!) and didn't want to go back. haha. "Rip it out? What are you talking about? I can't just decrease?" would have been my response if someone had confronted me about my knitting methods Wink

You did a great job!

Great job!

In Canada, that kind of hat is called a toque...we have our own names for screwdrivers and knitted hats.

Lead us not into temptation, for we can find it ourselves.

I always thought a toque was a flapperish ladies hat, I think beanie sounds more manly <grunts & scratches>. By the way, what do you call a screwdriver in Canada?

Beautiful. My first real project was a hat too - it was acrylic, and I knit it so tightly that it was probably waterproof. It was for charity, and I always picture the kid using it as a toy boat, lol. Yours is much nicer.  Smiley

We are dolls, they seem to say, but don't play with us. We bite.
