Shocked Don't tell me that!  I'm madly in love with him, and very upset that I was born a few decades too late.  Cry
I'm glad it's not just me!  I've had a mad crush on him since the 70s, when I was a wee girl. 

Peter Tork hit on me last year at a convention.  My husband took a pic of us together, and we look related, which makes his hitting on me a little creepy.

You have nothing to fear...my mom is happily married to someone else now!  He was touring with a folk singing group before the Monkees and they came to her high school.  She was a reporter for the school paper, and when she asked for an interview, he invited her out to get a bite to eat while they did the interview.  One of her brushes with fame...

Yeah, I've decided that the man that I will someday marry needs to be Mike Nesmith with a dash of Micky Dolenz mixed in. <3

On topic, w00t, tomorrow I'm going to buy lovely bright blue wool yarn for my hat!  Grin

My heart gets so happy when Monkees fans unite, 'specially when they are crafty! I don't knit (wish I could) so a few years back, I just tweaked a pre-existing green hat with a pom pom and buttons. Not very impressive. I've been wanting to make a lot more Monkees themed things lately. But I'm anxious to see your finished product. The bright blue is going to be interesting.

Here's a link to the Mike hat I finished this last December. 

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75222.0

I don't knit (at all), but I just had to have a Mike hat.  (As you can see, I went for the classic, first season green.)  All I know about how I made the hat is the following: 
I used (I think) 10 gauge needles
I knit/purled knit/purled till I couldn't knit/purl no more
I'm not sure how many stitches I started out with... 80?
I was told by the person who was guiding me through this difficult process to carry on until it was about 4 inches plus whatever brim I wanted, and then I was to reduce every 7th stitch, then do a normal row, then reduce every 6th, then a normal row, and so on, until it pretty much came to a point.  Then I just clipped off a bunch of extra yarn and sewed up the edges with a crochet hook. 

Clearly, I mean clearly, I'm not a knitter, but I thought I'd share anyway. 

Oh, and I'm completely jealous of your mom, marimbachick.  Man, what I wouldn't give to have been born 30 years earlier...

I've actually got mine underway now.  I'm kind of using obnoxiously large needles... a size 13 sixteen inch round.  I'm using some pretty 75% woll green stuff I found, it's worsted so I'm doing it double-stranded since the needles are so big.  Only problem is it's really stretchy, I've had to frog the whole thing to make it smaller five times already.  I've got it now, I cast on about 40 stitches or so.  I'm about halfway there... it's taking me ages because I really only work on it in class.  Grin
