Then I switch over to knit and hold the yarn in the European style that allows for very fast knitting. In an evening or two I have a new hat with all kinds of interesting bits of yarn thrown in.
This is what it looks like in the being made stage:
Here is one in blues and purples. You should try this, you don't even need a pattern, just get started and grab some of that wonderful knitting yarn that is available everywhere these days. Knit in the round (add a pearl row or two for variation if you want) until it is 6" or so, depending on the size of your head. Then begin to decrease, one every 8 stitches, then 7 and so on until you get down to just a hand full of stitches, cut the tail about 12" and thread back through the last few loops on the needles and tie off.
Yesterday was the inauguration. It gave me hope for the future and made me proud to be an American.
