    I have started knitting and am using boa eyelash and regular eyelash yarn for the tops of these hats. The other day I took my morning walk and a neighbor came out, loved the hat and ordered one. Later, I went to the bank, and the teller loved the hat and ordered one. They take about 3 hours to make and I'm having a blast. Maybe that's why my mother's 4 panel quilt turned into a 1 panel wall hanging???

    Are the ribbings w/2 strands of yarn too?
    I knit also and might have to borrow your idea :D . I've been needing a new winter hat.

    Those are really cute. I took up knitting two years ago and had to give it up, because my eyes always got blurry. But it was so comforting to sit and knit, I miss it.

    Back to quilting now.

    Yes, 2 strands on the brims/ribbings and either 1 or 2 for the fuzzy area, depending on how warm or how floppy you want it.

    LOL. Me, too. Necessity is the mother of invention, though. HAD to get "something" done in time and that was the only way. Better than washing it in hot water, huh? As it was, my DD and my DS will have to wait for theirs and I'm just finishing a wall hanging for DGD just in time to fly back East tomorrow through 12/30. Have a Merry Christmas and I'll be experiencing similar weather to yours this year!! 1st time in eons. Very excited.
