Your hat is great. But the important thing here is that I find a DVD copy of Desert Blue because I think I'm the only person ever who has seen that movie.

4 hours? wow you're fast!

Garbubba said...

You can definitely do the Friv!

And it seems to be infectious, 'cause I wanna do it, too.

Friv-o-rific. I gave my godmother a cabled scarf last year. She asked for a hat to match recently. I would love to attempt the friv but I don't think she could handle it. She's probably more simple cap-type hat... or toque... Those next to the friv? Bo-ring! Sigh...

4 hours eh? Very, very nice hat-I love it!

Emma said...

That is such an awesome hat.

NIce hat, I will have it in a queue to make it. I am sure this will look nice in green.

I like your Frivol, though I see what you mean about the light color. I had no love for this pattern when I first saw it, but now I'm seeing it everywhere, and it's growing on me.

I love Rilo Kiley, but I didn't start listening to them until I started listening to Jenny Lewis, so I had never heard that song. Also, that movie looks horrible. I have to see it.

Looks good. I love the photo. What's the smurf?

Sean Turner said...

I know this hat!

it came out really well, the pom-pom is a must.

i would just like to quote
"4 hours? wow you're fast!"

and then say that is what she said.

You know, I have always been off-put by bobbles, but your hat makes them look so cute! I may have to reconsider my bias.
