There is something downright luscious about a knit that takes forever until suddenly, it's nearly done.
Especially when the knit is worked in the round and is garter stitch. Garter grows so much more slowly than stocking stitch, being more compressed, and it can also get a little boring after the first three or so inches in sport weight on smallish needles. More so, when you have something in the vicinity of 150 stitches on those needles.
So. much. garter.
But hey, even slow hats end eventually! and when they do, it's a really good idea to consider stitch markers.
Normally I miss a few decreases when I'm doing a crown, and being forced to remember it's time for one by the presence of a stitch marker reduces the odds a little.
If all goes well, I should be able to show you how the Yak Hat came out sometime next week. Fingers crossed! Have a great weekend yourself, and I'll see you Monday.
