i know that there are several of you wonderful boardies who knit. i want a hat that looks like this one from A Christmas Story.....I have been looking for one like it for years now and have had no luck. I am hoping to find someone who can make one for me. any takers??

it looks like a tedius project. would have knit in the round, however using a smaller weight yarn, which means, takes longer.

when i was in joann's last week, i was looking at that easy knitting loom.....it was an "as seen on tv" thing. i wondered if i could do it myself. :dunno:

A girl I used to work with used the knitting loom. She enjoyed it and said it was fairly easy. Give it a whirl!!! :)

i'm not much of a knitter but that hat wasn't done in the round - it's got a seam. i'd volunteer to crochet it for you but i'm still working on some christmas presents from 09 ;)

i'll be hitting up joann's this weekend. i figure playing with a loom might be a good idea while i am out on maternity leave. :)
