Finished Odessa

My third Odessa, in RYC Cashsoft DK - I was going to have this one but have decided it doesn't really suit me, so it will follow the first two to Caps for a Cure. I'm going to make Blanche next for the group using Cotton Fleece, this is the current KAL along with Shedir, which I'm not sure I'm going to attempt just yet :-)

I picked up a snippet about slipping stitches in slip 1, k2tog, psso, on the Angel Yarns forum. The first stitch is slipped purlwise, which I had never seen written anywhere, I've tried it on this hat and maybe quite by chance, or maybe because of this, I think it looks neater on the decrease rounds. It certainly stops the slipped stitch overlapping and makes it easier to pass over.

Yours turned out wonderful! I made one in that color for Mandy, but my knitting is not that good.

It's lovely in that clour. Yours looks so neat, I cringe at how badly mine came out. Thanks for passing on the tip.
