Last week I finished these very sweet baby pixie hats. It was a free pattern I found on Ravelry and although I was tempted to splash out on some Noro kochoran at just under £15 a pop to knit these two hats up with, one of my knit and natter friends suggested I used any Aran weighted wool and because this was going at a reduced price from Fran's shop I bought a couple of 50g balls. She sells them on ebay too if you are interested.
Anyway, here they are back and front without the pom poms I was planning to put on the ends. I did attempt to make a couple of pom poms for the red one but they just fell apart!! I guess I should buy myself one of those pom pom makers if I want success in the future. You will notice that I left a few of the tightly attached threads at the ends to create a bit of an effect. The green one just got knots which is good enough I think.
I do love this tweedy yarn and the subtle strands of other colours dotted throughout it. I think these colours will be good for a sweet baby boy or girl, uni-sex colours I hope.
These sweet little Pixie hats are for two of my colleagues who are expecting their babies in the Autumn. New life, new joy!
See you soon
