This hat started life as a cowl neck warmer. After I had finished I didn't like it, thinking it was a bit boring, so I stuck a rib on one end, bound up the other and attached the pom pom and et voila! School Daze was born. I think it's pretty neat.

My nana taught me to knit when I was 6 yrs old. I have since picked up and put down the needles a lot. I think I now have a firm grasp of them permanently. Lets say I'm hooked.
