greyowl's ganomy.

I know I said there would be another installment of Yarn Crawl, but I just finished up a hat and thought it was deserving of an FO post. So, the few of you that are biting you nails, waiting to see what Philly yarn shop is next will just have to hold tight for a couple of days.

I like that you went for the ping pong ball feature. That is truly hardcore EZ.

Hey! I found your blog on the fredflare blog (where I'm a bit addicted and tend to comment daily), and I like your mad craft style! Once I tried knitting, and it just didn't work out. Dang. I'm also a fan of Nigella and Mama's Family. :) E-mail me at oldnavy41@hotmail.com (generic, I realize) if you'd like! Thanks!

i was checking out ganomy hats on other knitters' websites, but it seems like yours fits astoundingly well in comparison to theirs. did you adjust the pattern at all?
