saturday

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.

i love that hat. i need to make a new one - i've worn my old one so much that it's all stretched out. (and hooray for borrowed cameras!)

Jan said...

I love this hat - let's see - how much time until Christmas . . . ?

Mama Urchin said...

Yeah for quick knits!

Annie@Imagination said...

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!

Hilary said...

How fun, cozy, and chic! (The Christmas tree in the background looks awesome, by the way!)

Sarah Jackson said...

eek! I love it.

Nantucket Dreams said...

wow leslie!!! great job! i hope the kids never stop playing sports if this is what comes of mom being their number one fan!

Elizabeth said...

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.

I'd loan my D80 to you if you'd loan some knitting talent to me. Too bad I can't just buy knitting talent somewhere.

It is rare (in my book) that such a quick knit can also be stylish and cute. This cute hat is an exception.
