Hat 140: Daveness

Purple bobble hat, with light blue, grey/green and black bands.

See the resemblance?

This hat is in honour of Dave, who is lovely. Like Dave, this hat is funky, sexy, colourful and tasteful. It fits well and suits any situation.

It contains some light blue Rowan Cashsoft DK, which was (in my opinion) a little lighter than your average DK, a bit splitty but very silky and great stitch definition. There’s also some black King Cole DK Merino, which is lovely and soft, and heavier than the cotton I’ve been working with for the last week or so.

It’s enabled me to use up some of the little bits and bobs in the wool box. I really enjoyed knitting it. It even has a purple acrylic bobble on top, and was worth getting out the proper camera for.

Just like Dave.

Hats 138 and 139: Mattie’s dessert of choice

A purple and cream striped hat, and a white hat with red flecks and a red bobble

Yom? Discuss.

Mattie, who is wonderful and has made my windows all fabulous. pointed out that the one on the right has a cherry on top and reminds her of blancmange, and the one on the left reminds her of yoghurt. Who can argue with Mattie? No one, that’s who.

You’ll be pleased to know that my knitting work has come to an end for the time being, and I although I enjoyed almost every minute of it, I am pleased to be back to my usual knitting routine. I will be catching up as best I can, and I have some guest-blogging posts coming up too. 🙂 Watch this space.
