Here's my mini bobble hat collection, the red one isn't finished yet. It needs its tomato top.

I'm having such fun doing them, it could so easily become a bit of a obsession. Yay for ridiculously small beanies squee!

Would love to do a personal swap for a Zecora!

I went to the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace last Friday and picked up a Rowan kit with the pattern and yarn and a pair of funky metallic red needles. The yarns were pale pink and cream and I have already made 5 hats. Am off and running now and as soon as I use all the yarn in my kit I shall be raiding my stash to make some different ones. I feel some funky fur hats coming on.

And part of the kit price was donated to the fund too so all the better.

Shall post some pics when I have done some more. Explaining to people at my lacemaking  group on saturday why I was making hats for drinks bottle was quite a laugh too.

Yes they are lovely, I am thinking of ordering a couple from the Rowan website for my mum and a couple of friends.  Up to seven hats now and still got some yarn left.

I took my one little hat to the P.O. today and was informed that unless I pay for the super-duper fast shipping (mucho $$$), it wouldn't get there by Oct 22nd.  I barely had enough money with me to send it in the first place, so it's back home with me.  I'm so sad, but they do this every year, right?  I guess I'll just make a hoard of them for next year...  Cry

According to their website this is the 4th year they have been doing it so I would think they will do it next year.  Must send mine off in the next few days.

These were all of my hats before I sent them off...

My favourites were the bumble bee and the charlie brown hat, the fire hat and the hat that said 'hat'.

Those hats look great! i wish i'd seen this a couple of months ago (i only saw the Big Knit a week before the closing date).

I love the earflap hat, i am totally in love with its cuteness!
