100 and it's all for me!

This is post #100 -- Yay me!

And this is my new hat:

It is Wendy's Easy One-Skein Hat, found at p. 24 in her book, "Wendy Knits".

For most people, this pattern makes a lovely hat using one skein of Noro Transitions. However, I have a two skein head! I modified the pattern slightly, to accommodate my extra large noggin. I used a US10.5 16" circular needles and DPNs to decrease, rather than the US10 DPNs suggested in the pattern. I cast on 78, instead of 72, stitches. I used part of a second skein of yarn, instead of one skein. On my last decrease row, I k3tog for one of the required k2togs. I think it looks pretty good!
