Skills

As you can see, my self-portraiture skills have yet to improve.
But my knitting skills? That's a whole different ball-game.
This is a hat. A HAT. Hats aren't a variation on long straight lines. Hats have decreases and increases. Hats have shaping. This particular hat has rib stitch (cue impressed 'ooh'ing noise), and weird tucky things that involve picking up stitches from several rows back.
I am excessively proud.

  1. You should be proud!
    The hat looks lovely and warm and, well, I'm a sucker for the slouch hat.
    Good Work!

  2. Ooooh! Now that actually looks like a good, warm, comfy hat! It's not one of those useless one-size-fits-all makes-your-eyes-bulge-out-how-tight-it-is things one finds in the shops. ;)
