I needed a hat and had some great 100% wool (Thanks again Alison H!), so I -- guess what? Made myself a hat! I used chunky wool, size 10 needles, cast on 66 sts and work k1p1 rib for 3 rows, then work st st for about 6 inches, then start decreasing. Now we all know my little problem with making hats, they are always too shallow, right? Well this time, I was determined to NOT have this problem, so I kept going past my normal quitting time. SO what do we have when I try it on??? TOO DEEP! It's impossible, impossible I tell you, to make a perfect fitting hat! Of course when I make hats for OTHER people, even when they're winged patterns (as they usually are), they tend to work. But if I try to make myself one. . . no such luck. Do my hands know that the product is for me??? Is this some perverse way to feel guilty about doing something for myself instead of to give away or sell, subconsciously making me not ever want to make myself anything ever again? Or do I just pay less attention when it's for me, because I am the only one who will be dissapointed if it sucks? I don't know, I don't know. I do know this is depressing. Will try to get it scanned to show off, it is still nice, if only I had a really big head. Sigh.
