Then, some extra bulky yarn knitted on size11s, with the crown crocheted. It stands up all by itself. It's practically bullet-proof.

I have trouble estimating sizes and quantities. Ever since I was fifteen, men have been telling me that this (holds up hand with thumb and forefinger approximately four inches apart) was six inches, and I have been irretrievably confused ever since.

Tomorrow I am embarking on a bit of an adventure. I'm taking the on-line application test for Jeopardy We'll see how far I can go. Wish me luck!
