A Brand New Hat

Recently for no apparent reason a hat design popped into my head and just wouldn’t go away.  I tried patiently telling it I wasn’t a knitwear designer and it would be better off pestering someone else, but it just wouldn’t listen.  It kept on at me and bullying other ideas in my head.


So, given how obstinate this idea was being I finally relented and agreed to help it get out of my head and into yarn.


Enter my first ever designed hat.  It was knit out of two 50g balls of Sirdar Hug I had lying about and I’m rather pleased with it.  Yes I know there are fancier designs about, in posher wool, that show much more skill.  But this one is mine all mine and just for a little while I’m going to allow myself to feel an incy wincy bit pleased with it…

Oh and yes that is my hair dangling out beneath it and the photos were patiently taken by Maytheweed for me.


  1. You deserve to be really pleased! It's a lovely hat.

  2. Very nice! I like the slouchiness (of the hat, not referring to posture). It looks like a fast knit, too, which I love.

  3. Thanks Guys.... I'm looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear it out!
