334/365 A hat in progress

One thing I've enjoyed about watching Mom learn how to knit is seeing how various projects come together.

Scarves are simple, but I had no idea that to make a sock, you'd start at the top, not the toe. Same thing for a hat -- start at the bottom, not the top, and gradually taper in to the rounded crest.

Because of the way you do round objects like this, I saw this interesting pattern sitting next to the couch last night. It's a partially-done hat, and you're seeing the inside, the back sides of the cable knit.

I like the even, repeating pattern. That's exactly what caught my eye.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens and 430EX speedlite, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 500
