Hello All,

I finished my scarf and even made a hat to go with it.  I was going to make a slouch hat but changed my mind once I got going.  I knitted several rows to make a rolled brim.  Then I was concerned it would be too loose so I did some ribbing.  The body of the hat is seed stitch to go with the scarf.  I got off track and made some wrong stitches which made a line.  So I went with it.  I deliberately made the same ridges at different points along the way to make that first error fit in.  I like it.  Foolish me, I thought that if I was using a circular needle I would be able to decrease right to the end.  I got stuck and ended up buying some double point needles.  It was the first time I've used double point needles and it was a bit awkward.  I'm happy with the finished product.

They definitely keep me warm.

Hope you're having fun creating beauty.
