12:10 p.m.
12:31 p.m.
5:00 p.m.

Although, I could have been wearing it at 3:00 p.m. Knit entirely watching kids basketball. I wore it the rest of the evening.
Honestly, you can make this in 1 1/2 hours. Instant gratification.
I used this yarn, color #9408.

A friend lent me her d80 over the weekend. A slice of heaven, I tell you. A slice of heaven.

  3. great hat! and I have to say -- I first misread your post and thought you had knit this in 21 minutes and thought "OMG -- that's got to be the quickest knit ever!" and realized it wasn't 21 minutes!

    gorgeous colour -- looks like great yarn!

  6. That was such a great hat the first time you posted it - but that yarn is over top fantastic. Such a rich colourway. A one day knit is a pretty tempting post-Christmas prospect.
