The Opie Hat!
Named after Opie in Sons of Anarchy. All season I admired the fact that he rocked his "man slouch" hat, so I made one!

I want one!
I used 1 skein of Malabrigo Lace in black, held doubled. SO, I'm going to send one reader the second skein of this yarn that I purchased when I thought the hat would take 2 skeins, so someone can make their own Opie Hat (or something else, of course).
The contest? Give me an example of a garment you've seen that you would like to, or have, used as an inspiration for a handknit... it can be from TV, a photo, anything. Just give me a link to a visual that you find inspirational. The inspirational look or garment does not itself have to be knit. One caveat: Nothing from Harry Potter. It's been done. And I'm not a fan (there, I said it, okay?).
I'm always looking for new ideas from unusual sources, so I'll pick my favorite and send you a skein of black Malabrigo Lace, as well as a some other stuff from my extensive fiber stash.
