I love that hat. I have not knitted any hats yet but I have purchased yarn with the intent to turn it into a hat, actually I have a couple of balls of yarn with knitted hat plans attached them.
Yay legwarmers! I have yet to make any myself, but I have a few pairs that I have bought, mainly from sock dreams. I admit that I am not familiar with the term fingerknit. Is that somehow doing knitting with your hands but no needles?
I really like the color of the brioche scarf. That is a technique I have heard of but not tried, it seems like it is maybe more difficult than I am ready for.
I will have to take some pics of the stuff I am working on and post them for you later. Right now I have a 42lb mutt who thinks she's a lap dog making sure I don't need any legwarmers for the moment. XD
