How Not to Make a Hat
I wanted to knit a hat so I got some yarn labeled papaya and set to work. I used double pointed needles, cast on 90 stitches and started doing a 2x2 cable for the brim. About an inch into it, I realized it would be too small for me, almost a little girl's size. So I ripped it all out, and cast on 120 stitches, figuring it would be plenty big this time. I did 4 or 5 rows and it's still going to be way too small. Even worse I don't have 5 needles and the 4 needles won't hold any more stitches. It's maxed out. I'm not sure what I want to do about it. But it's 1 AM so it will have to be a problem for another day.
