Purple Quick Knit

Isn't it cute? It looks blue in the photo, but that's just because of the flash. It's my favorite color-purple. The one on the right is without the flash. (I just stick things on Marilyn's head and take pictures. She's so used to it, she just kept on knitting away. I'm not sure if I stuck a pom-pom on the top, though I think one would look really cute.

This was going to be my entry hat for Ravelympics, but decided I needed to design my own - pray for me friends, I still have four strips to complete in five days to earn my afghan marathon medal. It's going to be a photo finish!

This is almost the same as the other quick knit hat except I used a different stitch. It's a knock off from Quick Knit - Cool Accessories. It's probably Caron By the Pound because I don't have any other yarn in purple. Well, I think I have some Hobby Lobby yarn in purple, but I haven't knit with it yet.
Check out the archive for the info on the hat!

Hi Beverly,

I love the hat! And you know what, I miss the Hobby Lobby! I haven't been there since I was in Texas a few years ago.

Good luck with the Ravely Olymics! I am sure you will do fabulously in the afgan marathon! I couldn't figure out how to enter, but maybe I can figure it out for next year!

This is a very cute hat. Funny, on my computer, it really does look purple.

I miss Hobby Lobby, too. It's all I can do to go over there and throw the yarn department in my car. Alas, I am not allowing myself the pleasure-because there really is no place else to put yarn, except the bathroom. There is at least one skein literally in every other room in the house. Of course, I have to buy yarn from the donation we received, so that gives me some anticipation to going back there sometime soon!!

Does it look purple? Mebbe it's just me eyes...growing old ya know.
