With a cold that has been with me since the middle of December, I have not been doing much worth blogging about. I have made more hats - and a beard. These are the latest two and I think this pattern in my favorite. Large hook, loose stitches and can be made in one day if you don't do much else that day. Called a Slouchy Spiral Hat, it was discovered on the internet below a knitted hat with tiny owls circling the brim! Very cute but I gave up knitting when I determined it was very slow going in my hands.
