third time is a charm

i needed a feeling of success: a fast knitting without any sewing, a quick project (2 skeins) and an easy to follow pattern. the first try was started at meet to knit on friday and was ribbled in the same night at home (too loose for my head - i couldn´t believe it. normally every hat or cap is too small). the second try was started with smaller needles and ribbled after the match yesterday (still too loose...).
so i started my sunday-knitting with two circulars no. 4 (a new method for me to work in the round) and now it´s finished and fits: my sunflower tam from "knitting nature".
ok - not wearable for the next 4 months but a nice and quick knitting and i´m looking forward to use it in autumn & winter.

postscriptum:
i used about 70 gr royal tweed from lana grossa in orange. the gauge was perfect with needles no. 5 but now with the smaller needles the texture of the knitting suppose to be perfect for the tam.
