...yeah, we'll see how long that lasts. ^_^ I do have some lighter weight cotton wending its way to me for the floppy sunhat I wanted to make for Karen. That hat is knit from the top down using increases rather from the bottom up using decreases, so it should be another good learning experience. Also, the yarn was cheap, but it should be washable and wear well.
It actually looks kind of scary to me, but I do love a challenge. Afterwards. During the process there is kind of a lot of cursing and gnashing of teeth and tears, because I am too uptight to be 'ah, well, this is a first for me, it is natural that I make mistakes.' Afterwards, though, I always feel accomplished. Also, it is nice to knit summer stuff in the hot weather. It feels wierd to be making scarves and mittens during the summer. Winter will come soon enough. I don't need to rush it along. ;oP
