Last night at Friday Night Knitting I got Dobby Hat #3 knitted onto Hat(s) 1 & 2, then followed the directions for the next few rows but it wasn't looking like the picture. Now I know that I don't have to knit patterns exactly and there's nothing wrong with using the pattern as a jumping off point but it wasn't looking the way I'd hoped, and when I looked at it when I got home and again today the hat looked like it was going to fit Sasquatch. This is not a small hat, not a medium hat, and maybe not even a large hat. I frowned at it for a few hours and decided to tink (knit backwards) a round and a half, through about eight cable crossings--talk about frowning--and picking up one dropped stitch, to the beginning of the first cable round after joining Hat #3 to the hat body. Now I'm planning to make a cable crossing in each 6-stitch section to pull in the hat body so it has a ghost of a chance to fit a normal size head. We'll see. I don't mind making cables and I'm not decreasing any stitches but cables pull in your knitting so this should be okay. *she says with her fingers crossed*
I stayed up too late finishing a novel to have time to write so th-th-that's all folks.
