My first ever commissioned work: roll-edge beanie in Rainbow Wools Popcorn in "ice blue" (used approx 80g). Knitted on 8.0 mm dpns. The yarn is thick-and-thin and the decreases at the crown went a bit bulgy, but I couldnt get them to sit any better.
The yarn has knitted up much more blue than it looked in the skein, and the commissioner was very happy with it when I handed over the goods this morning. I believe he used the words "clever" and "wow" several times, but then he may have been talking about the newspaper or some such. ahem.
These muggles are very easily impressed.
