OMG I Knitted My First Hat!

I was determined to learn how to knit in the round because I wanted to make a hat. Not on a hat loom, I have made those before. On real knitting needles. So I bought this awesome Noro yarn to motivate me. And it did! Yay, me!

I even used double pointed needles for the first time! Yay me again! The top of the hat is kind of wonky, I still have to get the hang of those things:

But with all my miscounting and messing up, it still came out looking like a hat!

It matches the pansies perfectly.

I think I have turned a corner with my knitting. A round corner. I think I am almost ready to tackle a sock!

That is so awesome! I knew you'd be able to do it! I can't wait to see your first pair of socks!
