with the matterhorn hat.
i finally finished the tweed rib band yesterday morning and was able to get on to themain stockinette portion of the hat.
I was able to fly through that.
i made it to the crown decreases last night and found after just one set of decreases that i needed to already shift to dpns. alas ihad no 4 mm dpns... i had 5 mm, i had 3 mm. but no 5 mm. i was able to track down some 3.5 mm. so i said wth i'll go with those. almost all of the decreases are done now but i believe the crown decrease section is too short now. my row gauge and st gauge changed pretty drastically with the smaller needles so took up a lot less height than i had anticipated for the crown.
i'm going to go ahead and finish with these smaller needles and see how it fits but i might have to rip back to just before the decrease section... fingers crossed.....
