This is the first knitting project I have ever done. I found out that I knit too tightly. The hat barely fits. I also got lost when I sat the project down. I didn't know if I left off on a purl row or a knit row. I figured it out after 2 rows. I now know how to tell the difference. At least It happened in a place that the hat still looks alright. I also use a needle size bigger just about on all my projects. Since this hat I have made other things and experimented with Fair Ilse. I love the challenge it brings. I will be getting a weaving loom soon. My mom is going to get me one for my Birthday. I am so excited. I love to learn new things that you can do with fiber. After that I want to learn how to spin. I am very lucky that I have plenty of time at work to work on crafts. I can do at least 3 if not 4 hours of knitting a day there. It is awesome.
