I had to share this, because I'm quite proud of myself, and, well, I'm cheap.  Cheesy

I like to cruise ebay looking for designer stuff at a bargain price. One designer I like is a British guy named Paul Smith. I ran across this hat one day, with a price around $50-60, I think.



2 thoughts came to me: that's so cute and crap, I could knit that. Sooo...when our local Joann etc had a moving sale I moved in. I'd already hit my LYSs looking for the exact shade of raspberry yarn without luck, but I found a nice pink wool blend (seriously soft) with mulitcolored flecks, and bought buttons to coordinate.

Making it was on my list of things to do while recuperating from surgery, and yesterday I finished it.



Total cost: $6.33. Grin

I like yours better! The way the buttons coordinate with the flecks is really cool.

Thanx y'all!  Grin

alicia, Joann has their own line of yarn called Sensations. The one I used is from their Bellezza collection, called Canditi. It's wool blend, chunky and REALLY soft!! The hat is done in Canditi Pink. I think it's regularly around $6 a ball, and it only took one ball to make this!

yeap, just as nice.

When I see knit scarves or hats in stores, I always think "yeah, i could make that" and pass them up without a second look... unless I'm stopping to check out the construction for later replication. Grin
