Week 19: The 3 1/2 Hour Hat

I can officially knit hats. Tired of my very cute but very useless $12 H&M hat (that has to be worn with huge ass headphones if it is to stay on my head) I finally made my very own hat that fits! It only took one evening to complete (thanks to Lamb's Pride Extra Bulky and circular needles), and it's a lovely mung-bean-green. Now I gots the warmest ears on the block, and I can decrease like a mofo.

That hat is totally mulogra! And what the heck does 'mulogra' mean? Well, it was the word I got for the blogger word verification, and I say it means 'bitchin' baby!'

Seriously, very sweet hat. You make me want to spend money. Are you taking orders?

And yeah, nice to see the face attached to tha knittah...

Martha has nothing on you. Just remember: Insider trading is okay as long as you don't get caught.

Hello #20,

My email is oldweston(at)gmail(dot)com.

The hat, I'm afraid, was improvised. But I'm sure I could scribble down some instructions, it was fairly easy!
