Getting Knifty!

So, I have had a Knifty Knitter for a couple of years now, and have made a few hats for people. I just followed the instructions and took off. Then, my mom found a blog where someone had made a cute had and put a flower on it. I thought,"I can do that!" So I went to Michael's today to get some yarn and found a book to do a few cute things. I was so excited that I came right home and got started. These things really are super easy. Even Addison is making a hat.

I decided to try this basket weave hat. I followed the instructions, that were a little tricky, but I figured it out. Within 2 hours I was done. It was that simple!
These are my looms, except for the red one that Addison is using at the moment, book, yarn, and a hat I started last winter for my mom, and finally finished this winter. Great daughter, aren't I?
Tada! Here it is. My plan was to make this for me, but when I got it done it was too small for me, but just right for Addison. You can't really tell, but the top of the hat is a basket weave, and the sides are knitted, with a cuff that is Purled (that's fancy Knitter talk).We added a cute flower that I got at Michael's too. All their flowers are 40% off right now! Yippee! I can't wait to make one for me tomorrow! I am afraid this could be an addition. I was googling tonight and there is a whole wide world of Knifty Knitter ideas. Can't wait to get started for the bazaar next year, or maybe I will get a little etsy store open! Who knows. Enjoy!

I SO want to do this. I can crochet (some), and I took a knitting class.. so I can knit (a little), I'd love to learn this.
