Aviator Hat

I have finished the Aviator Hat for Janelles friends birthday, I hope she likes it! I love this pattern and have made it many times, I used Heirloom merino wool for this one and it is so soft.



I also made some Carnaby Street Berets, the first one is in the lovely soft Patons Jet, which would have to be my favourite Australian wool at the moment.



The second one is made from good old dependable Bendigo Classic in practical black.



I have also joined the Malabrigo craze that seems to be sweeping this country and bought myself Tuareg
which hopefully will become these loafers. I discovered both the wool and the pattern on Ravelry.

Till next time, happy knitting.

I am kicking myself extra hard for not buying the Malabrigo in Velvet Grapes while it was in stock! Never mind, patience is a virtue.

Your hats are super cute!!
