one of these things is not like the others

One of these things is not the same. Can you tell me which thing is not like the others before my song is done? (anyone remember that from sesame street? I always loved that mini-game show)

Recently I've knitted a lot of boyfriend hats. I'm not surprised that I love this pattern. k3 p2 is my favorite ribbing. I use it almost exclusively on socks. I love how it looks, I love how it stretches, I love it. The decreases on this pattern are really cool too. I wanted to make one a newborn size so I cut the C/O stitches in half (50) but it ended up being a little too small, it's more of a preemie size. I'll have to make a new one, but with 60 stitches. Suzy's best friend's mom recently had a baby boy.

But if you were playing my little game, I hope you chose the scarf. Because, well, it isn't a hat.

I chose the scarf because it is crocheted.

The hats do look very stretchy. I will have to try it. Can you share the decreases for the hat?

I chose the doll's hat coz it was not for a living person.

You are just so talented! Those hats are amazing! In your honest opinion, would it be easier for me to learn how to knit socks instead of trying to crochet them?

I like ribbed hats because they fit a wide range of head sizes.

I think they are all beautiful! I don't have any idea how to do any of it, but I sure wish I did!! Know of any sites for Dummies? Really easy for the left handed dummy?

I should mention, momma b, that Marcia is also a leftie, so don't let that stop you!

I hear you could be a heck of a blogger yourself, Anchely, and I bet you could even teach me a stitch or two! I am guessing talent like Ant Knit has runs in the family!
