When you first knit up a pattern, sometimes you get it right and sometimes… its a little off. However, so long as you learn from your mistakes then that’s what counts.
For example, my first pair of socks:
They turned out ok… a bit larger than I had anticipated, and the toe seaming needs some serious work, but you can at least tell they are socks and they are indeed wearable and quite cozy! While I was knitting them up, I learned turning heels and the back of the heal stitch that eventually went into my cactuar doll.
Then there was the knitting book I received from my Dad and Elaine, in which they instructed on how to make hats with ear flaps. This would probably have turned out just as perfectly if I had stuck with just one color for my project but……
While the hat looks pretty cool (if i do say so myself) it is alas far to small for a normal adult head. It turned out the perfect size for a 15″ head… which is about the size of a child of under 1 year old. Which I do not have…. -.-
never fear, invaders hat has inspired me on a new project which you can expect to see here sometime in the future.
