    Great podcast (as usual).  I just finished “half Moon Hat.” I used Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Snapdragon, fro my stash. It was a challenge to work on the DPNs, but it came out beautifully. For my next one, I think that I will use a size 10 1/2 or 11 for the first two or three rounds, and then finish the body of the hat in the 13. I’m also thinking of using a 16″ circ for the majority of the hat and the DPNs once there are fewer stitchs.

    Sounds like a great hat! Thanks for sharing!

    I also knit the half moon hat in Rowan tumble cherry. I prefer to work with DPNs but it was tricky with a bulky yarn and bigger needle. It’s a great first slouchy hat. Just enough slouch to let me get comfortable with the style.

    Hello,  I’d like to share a baby sweater I’ve made. I used the below patterns, and added a hood, then I sc around the edges and sc7 around the chains of the buttonholes. I’m making a matching hat =)
