Hats are fun! I'm off to find a pattern for a cotton summer hat for someone who might or might not lose her hair. Wish me luck, please.

I also love knitting hats! They are fast, fun to experiment with and east to take along. I can't wear knit socks so this is the next best small thing for me. Strangely I don't like to wear hats though. I donate most, but DH has gotten several. Right now I'm almost done with my "how many hats will 4 skeins of Encore make" project.

I hope that will be my mantra this summer. After I finish the sweater I'm working on it's on to hats for the men in my life for Christmas. I'm planning on doing the one where you start at the crown, knit to the top and then start back down again. Great double hat that's nice and warm for the hunters in the family and those of us who live in the colder parts of the country. I'm going to try and make at least 3 maybe 4 by Christmas.

I know you're talking to to Lovebug, but I'll have pics as well when this final hat is done! So sick of these 4 colors!

When I get overwhelmed with all the projects I'm doing and just need to finish something--anything--I knit a hat.

For those of you who regularly start and finish things without 347 other projects interfering, you won't know what I'm talking about, but for those of you who love to start new projects and sometimes have trouble finishing them, perhaps you'll understand.

Hats are rewarding, refreshing, and so very manageable (and so are cowls, I just discovered).

Yes, pictures, please!

I agree! Quick, useful and portable project! Right now I am knitting a hat out of sock yarn (Koigu; it's gorgeous) so it will take a while. I think I've made 6 hats since starting knitting 3 months ago. They're easily my favorite!
