This student did such a great job on her hat.  She cast on with circular needles, knit for 6 1/2″, changed to double pointed needles, and then cast off and sewed the top closed.  Isn’t it such a cute hat?!!

What is just so wonderful about these knitting classes is the friendships that are being made.  The students are all so supportive of each other.  They help each other with challenges and celebrate finishes together!

Aren't those buttons fabulous?!!
