I have made a lot of hats since then and, to be honest, all the techniques I learned from knitting hats I used when I started to design knit monsters! I had no idea. Tonight I found the etsy shop of woodsmokewoolworks, the woman who designed the Bunnies and Carrots hat. Her hats are great. woodsmokewoolworks.etsy.com. Check it out!
So, to all those knitters and makers of things... What's your story? How did you learn to do what you do? What was your first project?
