A lovely lady in the US asked me to make one of my aviator hats for her grand daughter but she wanted a scarf instead of the normal earflaps. So the scarf-hat was born, knitted in beautifully soft Heirloom merino magic in a bright lollipop pink shade.
Yet another version of my Aviator Hat, this one in Iris Blue Classic from Bendigo Woollen Mills.
Speaking of Bendigo Woollen Mills, you gotta check this out, Neon in fabulous variegated colours. I am going to go and add to the stash, this stuff looks awesome!
The kids are into the second week of holidays here in Tasmania so it is very busy, not to mention noisy. I at least have my knitting group today to give me some 'me time', can't wait. I also have two other orders to work on as well, a pair of fingerless gloves complete with skulls and a black poncho. I also have just designed and made a great pair of fingerless mitts which I hope to add to my Etsy shop. I have only made this sample pair yet but I am very happy with the end result, they were made from Bendigo Rustic Pacifica in 12 ply.
That is all for now I am off to check out that Neon!! Till next time, happy knitting.
