Some firsts are better than others

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:

Pay no attention to the odd seamed toes!

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……

Remember this game?

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.
