Look! My first knit hat!
I had some left over yarn from one of the first baby blankets I crocheted, I figured why not try to make a matching hat? Once I figured out how to make the tail long enough to cast on, (but not too long!), and once I got it joined properly, (a bit more tricky than it seemed), and once I got past the first two rows (more annoying to not twist and get the stitches to flow than I thought), it worked up quickly.
The hat was done in two nights? Or was it three? Anyway, fast. Maybe just as fast as a crocheted hat, at least this style, anyway. And using the double pointed needles once starting the decreases took a bit to get used to. Maybe I’ll splurge and get another circular needle and do the trick the ladies at the yarn store…
