Latest Knitting FO-Note: This is my own pattern and my first attempt at charting [May. 4th, 2006|06:24 pm]

The Hat The Hat
This is version 2 of my first charted hat. It doesn't have a pattern except for the chart I drew.

I shot this in the mirror to try to show you more what it looks like from a distance, but it isn't for me, so it is too big for my head. It is too big for the intended head a bit too (which is 2" more than mine!).

Thanks! I have started knitting everything based on my own designs. It is a pain in the butt, but when I finish the item really is one of a kind, and that is pretty fun!

I like that sort of thing. My Mom does that now and then. Occasionally I kind of come up with ideas for her.

Also people will say, "oh my gosh where did you get that?" and you can look faintly smug and say, "I created it -from scratch."

I'm pretty happy with it. I thought they looked cuter when they were bigger (more detailed), so I might make a backpack with the other chart someday (but not right now).

OMG, you are getting so skinny...your face looks so thin.

I have been worried about you...I am happy your calories are up.

Thanks! My hair is just straightened, so it looks bigger. I'm eating more and not getting too skinny at all :) I'm also glad I'm finally feeling better. *hugs*

It came out beautifully! Did you re-do it? I remember something like it that I saw you doing before...

Yes, I recharted it after the first one was way too tall. Thanks!
