I found some time to knit!! Woot! This is a good thing, because I need to gift a couple of folks who have been particularly helpful and kind over the last few weeks.
The cables of the Cabled Headband were so successful that I wanted to expand into full hat-dom with the Cable Knit Cap. This was slightly less successful, but I kind of like it anyway. I sure hope Lisa does, because that's who's gettin' it.
See what I mean about the cables? Okay, not the cables at all, but the places between the cables. It's all loose and long and the single knit stitch of the rib is all wide and weird looking. And it's not only this way when it's on a head. I tried to block it, but let's face it, I have no clue how to block a knit hat (I can shape a fur felt hat, but this is completely different).
I hate feeling this way about something that's a gift. I suppose I should not give it to her and make something that looks better, but I'm also trying to convince myself that it's not so bad as I think it is and no one else will be so critical.
And then I think, "It's a hat, Sus. If you were that concerned you would have made it out of something other than Red Heart SS. Get the heck over it."
