What's your favorite thing you've ever made, knit or crochet?

Go figure. It took me 3 tries  across an hour to get to the reply window, and it's not showing me the original text. What was I replying to? Favorite project: And I always have problems with "favorite" questions. The double-knit neckwarmers were great showoff pieces, but I also like the crocheted sideways hat. (I made up the pattern, and it's very warm).

Sorry for the problems posting. I'm not entirely sure what a double-knit neckwarmer is or a sideways hat, but they sound nice. I'd love to see pictures!

double-knit-- a technique to knit two layers of fabric at once, often done with two colors of yarn that are swapped to make a reversable decorative pattern. (It's about the easiest color work there is; no long floats and the strands are always between layers).

Neckwarmer: a very short scarf with the ends joined, i.e. a tube.

As for the hat, you know how most hats are constructed either from the top and increased, or from the bottom & decreased? This one is from the side -- the first row determines the length, shaping is by short rows, and when done, there is a seam.
