Quick knit FO

I have another finished item to report! Wow I know, I can hardly believe it myself.

A little while back I bough myself a birthday present. Two tickets to the Paw Sox annual Stitch and Pitch (Rav group here). It's the weekend before my birthday and Hubster and I love baseball, especially the (Boston) Red Sox. It's the kind of thing we would go to before we had kids. Not that we wouldn't go now, but the kidsters make it logistically harder to say "Hey, let's go to a ball game!", if you know what I mean.

So I find myself with just enough time to make up a few charity items to bring to the game. And I have all this unknown, unlabeled, inherited acrylic just waiting to be made into cute kidster things.

The first is a girl's bucket hat. I did it in two days! Hey, that's a whirlwind for me. It's the first girly thing I've made and I kind of like it. I cast on with a pattern in mind, then changed it the very next round. Then I thought I'd do the Scrap Hat like I made before, but then changed my mind again. This is what I came up with:
I wonder if I can keep up this pace?
