Well I wish it was magic, but when I'm knitting with size 13 needles these do tend to go rather quickly compared to my current project that I'm knitting with size 4 needles.
I love the color in the multicolored yarn and that it made stripes. I've never knit with multicolored yard before because I feel it's a little less predictable than solid color, but it turned out fun.
The purple hats I played around with patterns. I liked this last pattern quite a bit. I think I'll use it again in the future. I hope all those small heads enjoy their new hats!
