Hey everyone! I want to thank you guys for playing my game so far! :) No one has guess exactly, but a few of you were very close! I'll post tomorrow morning letting you all know who the winner is, what their guess was, and, of course, what the project is! In the meantime... you know the crochet hat I started? Well, I restarted it... again and again... because I couldn't get the sizing right. I was thinking that I must be the tightest crocheter ever... until I realized something. The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn. I'm using a dk weight. Hmm... could be why some many sizing issues.... well, the label technically says is worsted, but it is NOT worsted. It's lighter than that. In any case, I went out and bought myself a size J crochet hook and last night I restarted it. And today, I finished it!
Pattern specs: Peek-a-boo flower hat (without the flower) from get-hooked.net. Yarn: Bernat Satins Solids, color Maitai. I used about half a skein. I added stitched to make it bigger around, and I worked a total of... a lot more rows than the pattern says. I don't know, I think I did like... 12? My comments: I like the yarn, except for the squeak factor (you all know, me and acrylic...) but it's pretty soft, and really cheap. I LOVE the color. The pattern was ridiculously easy, even for a beginner (with the help of her best friend...). My friend Emmy's comments? "It's cute... but not really for public." *facepalm* Oh well... at least I like it.
I still need to weave in the ends, but other than that, it's all done. Any last minute guesses on what I'm casting on (or, um, ahem... have already cast on) for? And Angie, Heather, shhhhh! :)
