This time of year, as the weather gets cooler, I start to yearn for yarn. I really don't like knitting, I much prefer crocheting, but I have found there are way better patterns for knitting. If I knit something, I end up knitting it at least 10 times due to a mistake, where I have to tear it apart and start again. I try it every year, even if I just do a scarf. I have never used circular needles and a hat for Maya was my first attempt. I finally got it right, after about 15 tries. I am so happy with the finished product, I will be making hats for my boys and a hat for myself.
