my big knit

25  wee hats !!

How cute are they? For the last couple of days I've been finishing up my hats for Innocent's Big Knit. My coworker Andrea spent a few days mass producing pompoms; I've finally made up the corresponding hats. Look closely - lots of different "peerie" patterns there. It was kind of fun to experiment with all these little Fair Isle patterns this way. Now they're all boxed up and ready to go. None too soon either; the deadline for hats is October 14th and these have a long way to travel.

It's a great way to use up scrap yarn from my stash. Last year's hats were all from leftover DK, this year, I've made inroads on my stash of baby yarn. With these hats complete I've used up the last of the green, yellow and purple, and used half of the orange.

It's a holiday Monday in honour of Labour Day but thanks unsettled weather - threatening skies and cold, gusty winds - we've had to change our plans. Looks like a day of quilting and knitting before heading out to my sister's for supper ;)

I'm serious when I say that you should turn that photo into a postcard! All us knitters would tack that onto our inspiration boards. Love your color choices.

Those all look fantastic. Maybe you could make also as Christmas tree ornaments - especially your lovey patterns.
