Hats are evil

Hats are supposed to be one of those “quick and easy” knits, aren’t they? They sure are super fast to crochet. So why have I been struggling so much with the two that I have been working on? It’s the crown decreases that keep getting to me (yes, even with the Yarn Harlot’s helpful instructions in Knitting Rules, which did not quite work out for me). In any case, one is done, and I will post the pattern this week (hopefully during which time I can get some good pictures). The other should also be done in the next couple of days. If it does not fit (this is the Gentleman Caller’s Hat, Take Two), we will have to have The Talk before I commit to re-knitting it for again. I am really, really, really itching to cast on for armwarmers and to take a crack at socks. And swatch for my sweater. And finish Lady E. And be done with these blasted hats.

In other news, The Knitting Librarian has a blog: Red Socks Nation. Go forth and subscribe, and marvel at the sheer speed of her knitting (and also her awesomeness).
