An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I've finished knitting the hat, using the magic loop method. It's based on the Wavy Gravy Hat by Elizabeth McNamee, but I've taken liberties with the pattern. I cast on more stitches than the pattern stipulated, to compensate for using a thinner yarn. But, in my usual fashion, I overdid it and had too many stitches. I contemplated starting again, but instead reduced the number of stitches after a few repeats, which has given a flower petal effect. Accidental, but pleasing.
