I just completed my first knit hat. Pretty good, i think for not really have someone show me. This time I just kind of looked through books and videos again, to find out how it's done. I figured it out, somehow, and this is what came out. I started this hat in February of this year (2010). There's a few bumps in the knitting, and one hole, but for my first knit hat, I don't think it's that bad.
