I take the DPN Challenge

A small & easy hat project, practicing double-pointed needle knitting skills. Really. Other people knit with these things, so can I. From the top of the hat this time, without a glass of wine. Three tries and off I knit.

Doesn't look so difficult!
Oh sure. Only a couple of un-ravels.

Seriously, I amend an easy pattern. Loved the red yarn with nubby color bits. It's wool & acrylic, not anything I'll be wearing in this climate. Not a suitable chemo hat either.
