I finished my Noro Silk Garden Hat this afternoon after restarting it for about the 543rd time.
It's pretty. It's so very pretty. I was mesmerized watching the stripes appear as I knit it. The color changes, oh the changes(!!!) so very pretty.
I changed the pattern slightly. I added an extra half inch of ribbing at the bottom and a few extra repeats during the decreases.
I'll add photos and all that crap later. I'm tired.
The color is 217. I wish tha they had real names... I think I'd call this one Autumn Evening or something... It makes me think of fall.
