Before completing this beanie, I hadn't been crocheting much. So, that's why there haven't been many posts lately. Last night, I came across somebody's forum post saying that she could knit a hat in about 45 minutes. This drove me into a (very slight) fit of jealousy because this hat probably took me about 5-6 hours. But, then, I realized she was probably using larger needles and chunkier yarns than I do. And I probably am slow to moderate speed when it comes to crochet.
