My husband has the flu this week. I’ve been spending a lot of time sitting around the front room watching Futurama DVDs (Zoidberg knits!) with him and working on this tam from the Stitch n Bitch Superstar Knitting book.
It required me to learn the tubular cast on, which wasn’t tough but tricky, and makes a neat, stretchy edge. The hat is a bit too large; I’m considering trying to felt it down a bit. I’d lose a lot of the pattern definition if I did that, though. As it is, I feel like Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company when I wear it.
