Trying Something New
You might think, going by what I've knit in the past, that this is another hat in the making.
You would be wrong. At least that's the plan. Instead of making hats to give away to other people, I am doing something about one of my two goals for once: making something handspun for me to wear.
I had this much knit in garter stitch. I told myself how wonderfully stretchy garter stitch is, and how suitable the stitch was for the item. Then I faced how much I dislike the look of garter stitch and I ripped it all out.
Good to deal with these things early. Good to make only what you like in the first place. But still good to make stuff, even stuff that's not optimal.
