This past Sunday there were two playoff games which we sat down and watched. I was working on finishing a sweater hem and put it aside and decided I needed to cast on another project RIGHT NOW. I had 3 skeins of Classic Elite Duchess in my stash (on sale at Webs right now) and I had found this pattern on Ravelry.
I cast on with size 10 needles and did the seed stitch band...then no size 10 dpns but I had size 9 16" circulars and also longer circulars for magic loop at the top. I kept on going and by halftime I had a hat! It calls for a fun large button and I've had this one for over 20 years - it was one I found in my grandmother's collection. It goes perfectly.
Here is Miss America modeling it...she wants it but it is MINE! Okay, I'll share.
