I started this spiral hat on what would have been EZ's 100th birthday (8.9.10), went to work, and finished it by bedtime. The next day I started another, and again, I finished it before bedtime. Then I did it all over on the third day. Now I have three, and I'm still itching to cast on another 10. The best part is that the girls love them. Success! I think I have my go-to for gift knitting this winter. Thanks again, EZ.
