Hats off to ya baby!

I'm really excited to say that hopefully very soon I will become a seller on a well known WAHM site!!

I've expressed my interest to the owners, who have in turn, said they are interested so I've been working hard on getting some stock built up.

I will most probably sell knitted baby wear - hats, MCN soakers, shorties and longies, coats etc.

Here are some of the hats modelled by my adorable son and his best friend "Teddy".

~*~Thom is wearing "Teddy Ears" (size 2years+); Teddy is wearing "Stripey Stocking Hat" (size 1-2 year old) ~*~

~*~Thom is wearing "Tassled Toque" (size 12 months); Teddy is wearing "Stripey Stocking Hat"~*~

~*~Newborn "Beanie Blooms"~*~

~*~Thom is wearing "Paper Bag Hat" (size 2 years+) ~*~
~*~Thom is wearing "Very Vertical Stripes" (size 1-2 years); Teddy is wearing "Beanie Blooms" (newborn)~*~

"Silly Stripes" - Toddler hat

Here it is :) The photo in my last post wasn't much chop but I'm so happy with the end result!

I will add more details of the pattern later but basically you knit 1 inch on circs as if to start a very simple hat. Then you pick up 8 stitches at a time and knit vertically to add the panels. You need to join the panels as you go which, to begin with, is pretty tricky, but not hard to pick up and remember.

It was a surprisingly fast knit too. It took me 3 days of knitting on and off when my son was asleep or otherwise occupied.
