Inspire me Thursday entry HATS




This is such an inspiration close to my heart, this time of year is when I start making up my new Christmas goodies and I'll be sat on the knitting machine working away on my felted creations. So hats mean, October, bonefire night, smoke, sparklers, knitting, gloves, scarves, prepairing for Christmas,cosiness and warmth.


This particular hat is called "Buttercup" and is knitted with 'super soft' Shetland wool and felted twice at 50 degrees in my washing machine, then sewn up. I have embellished this one with a simple flower and button design. More to follow I'm just getting them knitted up at the moment.
