More wee hats

wee hats mosaic

I had thought that I was running out of steam on the wee hats but it turned out that all I needed was a fresh injection of stash odds and ends into the project bag and another seven hours on trains this weekend to get me going again. Yes, it turns out that I am that easily amused that simply knitting with different coloured yarn is enough to enthuse me. In addition to the twenty hats featured above I've got another ten knit up and simply needing a pompom - the pompom-less beanie is not a good look on an Innocent smoothie it transpires - plus one more where the pompom completely blended into the wall behind when I took the photo.

Favourites from this batch include:

ladybird hat

The ladybird spot hat

baa!

Another sheepie hat - this time with added loopiness (loops made every other stitch rather than every fourth stitch).

wee hat

and all the hats featuring Harris rib stitch (as it's called in my Harmony guide).

They're all fantastic! I made a sheep, but his head is too small, and his face looks creepy, so I'm going to make a new head for him. I'm greatly admiring the pom-poms on your hats. I always use an i-cord because I'm rubbish at pom-poms.

These are wicked cute! I'm glad I'm not the only one who seems to be hooked on mini hats: http://thisandthatfromhere.blogspot.com/2011/10/itty-bitty-hats.html
