I'm desparately trying to finish BIL Brian's hat today. I just about had it, tried it on......too short. Darn. Well, it looked good on me, but I doubt it would have on Brian.
Gave me an excellent opportunity to try Amy's video on inserting your needle in a destination row before unraveling (see Basic Techniques ->...More). It really works, just be sure you're grabbing the stitch from the same row all around. I had a hard time distinguishing between rows 8 and 9 :rollseyes: geesh, can't even blame it on alcohol.
Back on track and adding length to the hat. I would really like to get it done tonight, but we'll see.
I'm using Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca in medium blue and white, US 5 needle. I'm using a basic hat pattern from The Knitters Handy Book of Patterns, doing my own funky striping thing. Do you think I should add another stripe (or set of stripes) or just leave it blue to the top?
