Hats and more hats

Plenty of small projects in recent times, still some I can't yet show but here are the ones I can!

Urchin Cap by Woolly Wormhead, knitted over the past couple of days in RYC Soft Tweed, shade Bramble. Lovely pattern and it fits a treat, and I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn. Pity it is now discontinued!

VeeDub beanie, just a simple 2x2 rib border, stockinette then 4 sets of paired k2tog/ssk decreases at the crown. Knit in New Lanark Donegal Silk Tweed Aran in Dark Graphite. I needle felted the VW logo using Cascade 220.

A rib beanie in Noro Silver Thaw, made for a gift - one of my favourite patterns I think as I've done three so far, all gifts!

More details on Ravelry/Flickr for these, I do find blogging coming very low down the priority list these days! I generally update my Rav projects list fairly regularly though.

Hope everyone is having a good holiday/break, wishing you all a very Happy New Year! My goal in 2008 is to knit up some of my stash, I've already made a start :-)

Finally - maricel, thanks for your comment, I can't find a way to contact you though. I do have the pattern you're after from the now-defunct Spun, so please email me directly on the address in the sidebar :-)

Love the hats, especially the Woolly Wormhead Urchin cap. Probably it's the pattern I like, but definitely the colour.

I know what you mean about spending more time on Ravelry. Forget bloglines, it's how I keep up with what people are up to now.

They are all gorgeous, and I love the needlefelting on the V-Dub hat - what a fantastic idea. The Noro one is my absolute fave tho :D

Have a wonderful New Year, all the very best to you!

Hat Queen strikes again! :) Love them all but how I wish Urchin would suit me as that one really catches my eye. Well done on the needle felting and the colours of the Silver Thaw beanie are delicious.
