FO - 'Topi'

I made 'Topi' from the Spring 06 Knitty this week & love it!

It's knit on 4.5mm dpns, then circular needles (4.5mm and 3.75mm). I substituted 4mm for the latter as don't own 3.75mm ones. Apparently you can knit it with almost any yarn as gauge is not really that important (sounds like the perfect project..). I used Jo Sharp DK in 'teal'.

It ain't perfect, but it's my first ever hat that isn't a beanie so I figure I can see past the uneven garter stitch jog and the puckered sections at the sides of the brim that are supposed to resemble short shaping rows.

ps - Very jealous of everyones yarn purchases!

i found your blog the yesterday by accident, and was reading it, and wasn't until AFTERWARDS that it dawned on me that it might be the blog of a Mt Lawley SnB girl. *facepalm*
in my defence, you didn't show your face in any of the photos.

i laugh at your mudflats adventure.
