My hat grows. I have successfully completed 2 inches of 1 x 1 ribbing, swapped colors, swapped stitches, and am another 1 inch into the hat. This pleases me greatly. Yes, I am still feeling smug. Remind me of this when I am cursing the hat and my idiotic idea that a man’s hat was a good idea on US 1’s with 7.25 stitches to the inch.
