I am looking for a hat for my friend's husband's birthday.....that is tough to type and say!  I was thinking of the pattern in the Stitch-n-Bitch book but decided to check with you knitting gurus first.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I just finished the hot head (I presume you're not thinking of making him the 'old lady' or kitty hat) from Stitch & Bitch last night. Thank goodness I did a gauge swatch, because last time I did that pattern, it wouldn't have fit a Barbie (ok, exaggerating, but close enough). I think the general consensus is that it will take longer than the two hours stated in the book, but still a nice little quick knit. Very easy pattern; I recommend it.

I agree, I like that pattern...  but then, I've never done it, but I know several people who have and they all came out nicely.

I knitted up the Hot Head pattern for Mr Crumpet, but the yarn I had was thin and had to be double-stranded.  I ended up using navy (spun with a lighter blue), maroon (spun with greens and blues), dark green (with coloured speckles throughout), and a combination of brown and black.  It came out really well and he loves it.  I'll take a picture later to post.
