I finally remembered to corner Tam and take some pictures of the hat I made him a few weeks ago. It was my first go knitting on the round and I loved it! So simple and quick to do. I haven't progressed much with my hat (I can't find the right size of dpns anywhere locally, gonna trawl the charity shops with my needle size gauge today!) so I've been knitting a bunch more hexies to keep my fingers busy.
For this hat I used the Jacques Cousteau Hat pattern from here and, at Tam's request, added a pompom belatedly this weekend. Because the UK doesn't make 3.5mm needles (must stock up in America next month!) I made the decision to go up a size instead of down, so I used 3.75mm needles for the whole thing. This turned out to be a dumb move and I should have went down a size since the hat is now a tiny bit big, but lesson learned for next time.
