Douglas' Winter Hat
A bit ago, Douglas approached me about a tam I had knitted for him a few years ago, this one:
He finally told me it was much too big so he'd never worn it! I asked him if he liked the yarn and he said yes, so I promptly began ripping back the tam and salvaging the yarn, which was still good. Then came the hard part--nailing Douglas down long enough for him to choose a new pattern, but finally he did and I set to knitting.
The first re-try was still too big, so I ripped it out and decreased the size, then tried again.
It looked much better this time so I had him try it on again.
I think he likes it now!
