i knit a hat. and it's (almost) perfect.
what the heck - i got to model it too:
somehow i messed up the swirl and at one point had two extra stitches, so i double decreased those. it made the swirl a little wonky, but it'll be sitting on my head and shouldn't make a difference anyway.
ravel'd here...i knit the brim on size 4 needles for two inches. increased to a size 6 needle for the body. i so hope that codex returns at some point - i loved the silkiness and it's lovely to knit with.
and...i finally finished the doxies! ravel'd here!
this one has a stork bite on the butt, just like petunia's! it was the only way to differentiate between the two!
i wish i knew why i took me so long to knit these guys. the bodies and tails were done, all i had to do was make arms and ears then assemble. i think i slogged becos i had to make two of them. that seems to be the theme for making things for the kiddos (see also: the owl sweaters).
