Good for on the go..

and for using the little bits and pieces.

More hats have been on and off the needles recently.
Another one started ready for this weekends outings

Perfect sized canvas for playing with colour and design.

The latest batch are sized for bigger people though there is a smaller one in there too, no picture here though as I'm experiencing technological issues, maybe later? Fixed!

Lovely texture and a little colourwork
I've been reminded that not all yarn is created to a standard measure and my tension moves around a bit when working in the round.

Three hats with the same number of stitches in different patterns and yarns, all labeled 8 ply, turned out a variety of sizes.
Three the same but different

It is a fun experiment and there will be more than one new design at the end of all this play time!

And lots of hats for warm heads this winter.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with lots of playtime.

Loving those hats sitting in the sand. :-) Lovely lovely lovely!!! I just noted your cross stitch in the side bar. The guardian spirit one. I have that one hanging in my front room. She is so so pretty! One of my favourites. A pleasure to stitch! (before ones eyesight started to go of course! LOL ) :-)

I can follow the same pattern over and over and still have different results no matter what. The hats are lovely and will certainly make some folks very warm and happy. Best wishes, Tammy
