... Try, try, again. Isn't that how the saying goes? Well, after I finished my new hat design of which I posted a sneak peek on Friday, I had some doubts about the drape and structure of the hat. I'm really pleased with the overall design and stitch motif; in fact, I think it's a really fun hat to knit, but I didn't like how loose it fit around the head.
So, I frogged both versions and re-wound the yarn. You would think I would have been so frustrated as to stuff my needles and balls of yarn into my knitting bag, right? Wrong! I felt really excited to start again and am happy to say that I worked out the numbers a bit differently and sent the pattern out to be test knitted and tech edited. The wonderful Pumpkin already finished her test knit for me and did a spectacular job and Gail will be tech editing again for me.
Stay tuned early next week as I plan to release the pattern then with a very special incentive to cast on.
