So many tiny bland stitches on tiny prickly needles.
Ok, this will be worth it, right? Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love a double brim, but 7″ of brim on 2.25mm, stop, pick up live stitches for brim, join, then several moments and rounds later, switch to 2mm and put on your 5x magnifying eyes and pick up so many tiny stitches for that built in welt …blurg! (ok, that welt is kinda cool!)
Hard parts over, almost there, feeling hopeful, yes, yes this will be worth it! ..but why do my tiny stitches look choppy?
Blocking will straighten things right out, right?
Well, blocking kind of worked, wtf tiny bland stitches :(
Floppy and fluid, it feels like practically nothing, romanced now by the then fussy welty brim details.
From a distance, acceptable perfection. I had no idea I would love hate this so much, the fact that it looks like it came from a machine makes me strangely pleased.
Now, I wish it were black, but if it were, it would have never happened.

Wow, just wow, those are some tiny stitches.
So Tiny! It seems like it took forever to grow, but those tiny stitches made the finest knit fabric ever! 😍

hahaha – “#666” nightmare lace weight hat – how devilish! But delightful, and tiny, yes.
It was all that and then some! I’m already warming to the idea of another, I love the fine weight and finish 😙
