    Beautiful work! We saw a lot of knit work for sale while we were cycling in Nova Scotia this past summer. It must have something to do with those long, cold winter nights! :D

    She knit a bunch of the brims one day and then started on the tops , she said about a day and a half per hat at a pace allowing you to do other things , if you sat down from start to finish , polly 4 hrs .
