I Made Hats

I was bored this week and in need of some instant gratification. The Spud and Chloe, that I bought while in New York City, was calling from my stash hidden deep under my bed. I also knew just what project to cast on. Leslie's Chunky Knit Beanie. Easy, fast and oh, so satisfying. So satisfying, in fact, I made another. With Rowan Big Wool. I'm in love with both of them!

I have to say I really enjoyed knitting with the Spud and Chloe. My stitches were a bit loose due to the cotton content but I love the feel of the hat on my head. I'm not wishing for winter weather anytime soon, but when it comes, my head will be very warm indeed.

Is that a haircut I see, under the hat? Looks cute! Love the hats, too!

I love it!...it fits you so nicely.
The chunky yarn...I'm liking that, nothing like something instant...
-who needs size 1 needles anyway?!

i love both of them, but i think that white-ish one is tres-chic.
and i'm so crushing on your hair, too. i cut mine waaaaaay too short this summer, so to me, you look like you have just the length i'm dreaming of someday, way in the future, of having again.
and jane? why don't you have a shop so I can pay you to make me one of these? why?
