I learned to knit about 20 years ago, and sometimes I'd pick up my needles and make something, but I never really did a lot with it until recently. I'm getting to a point where I actually understand patterns and can knit without looking. (Which is huge for me, because I still sometimes look while I type! Even after grad school and everything!) So, now I actually feel like I need to knit every day, or else I get withdrawal.
Anyway, I just knitted up this hat this week, and I'm really pleased with the results. The pattern is Ann Norling #54 and was super easy, even for me and my intermediate skills. ;) I used that super-soft Highlander yarn (a wool-angora blend), and was really happy working with it.
Fun! And now my head can be warm. And yes, my hair is truly that orange.
