Knitting hats in February

Hello everyone!  I actually have a couple of Blog posts lined up but I'm going to start with this one today!  First I would like to thank everyone who commented on my last post about the amigurumi I've been trying!  I haven't had a chance to practise anymore as I'm bust prepping for my first ever craft fair, but I have taken everything everyone said on board  :-)

Even though its getting to the middle of February I've been trying to knit a new range of hats as personally i think it is still hat weather :-P Eventually I hope to have some matching hand warmers too!  That's the plan anyway!!

These are the three hats I've done so far!  The mustard yellow one sold within a day which i wasn't expecting at all!  I am going to redo it and make the hand warmers to match to make a little set!  I've started on the rusty red mittens, just waiting for more yarn supplies!  The hats are £12 each and I pretty much do them in any colour people ask for!  So far I've done a forest green with grey bobble, a purple and cream hat with a lime green bobble and a black and white hat with a black bobble!  It never ceases to amaze me the different colours people like :-) I keep meaning to make myself one but I never seem to have the time!

I'm currently working away on some brooches for the craft fair.  I'm really nervous as I've never done one before and March is quite late so knitting might not sell as well as it does in winter, but I guess it is all practise!  I've also started work on a new mixed media project but that may have to be put on the back burner for a little while!

This is just a first draft, I will probably draw her again too!  I want to work on the mouth and make her look a little happier.  I drew the glasses to look like my own but I'm not sure it's worked, I may try a different shape, we shall see :-)

Well that's it for now.  I have an exciting Blog post I will be doing on Friday hopefully, well its exciting to me :-P Oh if any of you are interested in the hats then please don't hesitate to email ;-) 


  1. Your hats are very good and I wish you very good luck with your craft fair. Your drawing is awesome and I think the glasses do remind me of yours. I look forward to seeing how she progresses. Have a fab upcoming weekend. Looking forward to Fridays excitement :D :D

  2. The hats are adorable. They look amazing to wear in this cold weather.

  3. I can't wait to see how your little lady turns out - I think she suits her glasses!

    As for the knitting - those bobble hats are fab! I bet they'll still sell in March - especially if it's still this cold.
