Yeah, so much drama over a little hat. There's a relief of sorts, as now I have the confidence to move on towards something more complicated. I'm not saying socks on DPNs here, maybe more like a pillow cover with a nice stitch pattern and color changes.
The most important thing I discovered..... I like it. I get it now. Knitting is fun. By the time I was half way through, I got into the zone, or rhythm that I hear knitters talk about. I felt comfortable in the way I held the yarn (there was lots of practicing between Continental and English. I am an English knitter, like my mother and grandmother, although I think Continental looks like it's faster), and picked up the pace. Yep, more knitting will be happening. Less caution, more knitting.
