Okay, so.. I bought the yarn Friday, after work; started it Friday night and finished it by Saturday late morning!  I didn't block it, but I have been wearing it ever since. :-)  Getting a lot of complments on it and may make it in another color as well.  :-)  I am presently working on Greta's Headband from Interweave Knits Summer 2012 with a different yarn than it called for; so far, it's coming out nicely.

This cute little hat was easy to complete- about 8 hours total for me (an intermediate knitter).  I love how much fun it was to knit, but even more, how happy it looks on my head!

This little hat looks like it would be fun to wear and work up quickly.
