I Have a Big Head
I think I tried to do a backside 1080 and fell on my butt.
You see, I have a big head, bigger than I thought, and I'm this close to ripping out the hat to before the braid because I'm just not happy with it. I don't think it's big enough to give me the look I want. Nobody needs the hat-head associated with a tight hat. And I'm not happy with the tension. I think I'd like it better if I doubled the pink.
I know, I know, I could block it out. But I just don't think that'll be enough here. With the stranding, it won't stretch as much as one-color knitting.
I like the look of the Knit-Flat Hat in The Knit Stitch; it's kind of square. My hat is definitely more of a skin-tight, painted-on look.
So, it's too late (at night) and too soon (after deciding) to rip. I will sleep on it and wait until tomorrow night to show it to the group at Barnes & Noble, and if I decide to rip, they will be there to support me.
But it's ok. If were really in the Olympics, and had really fallen while snowboarding, attempting a backside 1080, I'd just kick butt on my second try, and that one would count, and I'd still get a medal. Sounds good, huh?
