The replacement hat (for the original hat really is a bit too worn to use for photos) is clipping along nicely.

The biggest slow down is that I keep stopping to fold up the corner and admire how it comes together.

Sometime even going so far as to move it over to circular needles (one of the very few things circular needles do better than DPNs is wrap around curvy things like heads).

This does not make for speedy knitting.  I mean it’s satisfying…but not speedy!
