I haven’t had much time to update the blog lately because I was sooo busy knitting hats. One of my new years resolutions is to actually tackle problems rather than always knit the same easy things where I do not have to use my brain. So, I made these two extremely warm hats (a third is in the making – to improve the decrease section). I have used Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky, a 100% super soft merino. I have used slightly too small needles to make sure I’ll get a dense and warm fabric. The blue-green one is in simple stockinette, for the black-white-red I have used a ribbed pattern to get an even chunkier look.
I have also knitted two more feminine hats, one for my mum, one for who knows. So, my mum left London with a purple Super Cupcake by Bonne Marie Burns.I have used Debbie Bliss Rialto DK for the ribbing and added Debbie Bliss Angel in a very similar colour for the main part to add a bit of a halo effect. It is a very nice and simple hat in shaker rib pattern.
I just love it. I have used Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed which is perfect for that 20ies inspired style.
Unfortunately it is slightly too big for me, I guess because I haven’t got much hair. So the hat is currently headless, and I am looking for a loving and caring home for it. If you have any suggestions please let me know!
