I thought I'd share some of my favorite knitted toques. I'm proud of my efforts, even though these are the third, fourth, and oft-times fifth versions of the hat.

Knitting remains fun and a practice for self-reflection. With each row, I notice something about myself I try to work with in between each stitch.
