The needles have been pulled from retirement to relearn knitting. I am possibly one of the worst well intended knitters out their. My experience is scarfs, blankets and wash clothes. I made a sweater once, tried to make a hat, and failed miserably with socks. This yarn is my motivation, purchased from my favorite store Yarn on Third Street. I am attempting a hat that will not be an embarrassment to wear. Wish me luck.
