Gotta give it up to Nifty Knitter! I've never liked knitting because it took me too long, but I was able to turn out this fun (uber warm) hat in 2 hours on my circle loom! It's a gorgeous garnet wool acrylic blend. I'm gonna add a flower or something to the side tomorrow.

That's very cute!  I have met quite a few people in the stores who were learning to use those.  Looks soft and warm.  You did good.  What yarn did you use?  ~Tricia

Thanks! The loom said use a thick yarn, so I grabbed the thickest that I saw; although I'm sure I could use something else if I wanted. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. It's nice and soft and squishy.  Grin
