A Head Full Of Hats

The Innocent Smoothie Big Knit has sparked my imagination and I have gone into hat-mode. Small hats, warm hats, fun hats, colourful hats, elegant hats, plain hats. Little ones, that is.

They are all small wee hats that are done in no time. I am having such fun and I’m completely inspired by all these little ones and have started a full size winter hat collection on the back of it.

These two ran off the hook in jig-time and there are more to come. I’m having fun with colour and texture, shape and imagination.
The summer has been so cold and grey here in Ireland and we are now facing into a dark winter and I have this notion of making it a colourful and warm one. No dark colours here…

I’ve taken a stall at the Tinahely Arts Group Art & Craft Fair at The Farm Shop in Tinahely on Sunday September 25th, I’ll make it a hat themed stall and encourage punters to make a hat for the Big Knit. More about all that later.
