Wow! I knit an article of clothing and it fits! Someone alert the NY Times!!
This is a wonderful fun hat to knit and wear. It’s called the Shackleton hat; you can find the free pattern here at Weaverknits blog. She also has some other wonderful patterns that I plan to try now that my ego has been boosted by a fitting garment. (oh yes I am too counting a hat as a garment. hey, it fits!)
I am currently knitting a hat out of some grey home spun for my cousin Michelle (she of duct tape dress form fame). I’m also planning to spin some funky wild art yarn for a groovy hat to wear next year during the next “cold” snap.
