Hat Progress

Wow! Two posts in one day!

As promised here is a photo of the stripy hat in progress.

Stripy hat in progress Posted by Hello

I started off knitting this on a set of 4 Pony metal double pointed needles, and discovered that though I love knitting socks on my bamboo and ebony double pointed needles I absolutely loathed knitting with this yarn on metal dpns. I have now switched to a Milward metal circular and though it isn't as nice as knitting with my Addi Turbos (which I don't have in the right size) it is much better. I am having a go at the magic loop technique as I decrease for the crown, but I might have to give in and switch back to the dpns soon.

Anyway, the sun is out, the sky is blue, and I am about to attack the weeds in the front garden ... I may be some time.
