While I try to decide which yarn to use for O W L S*, I’ve been keeping busy knitting some quick birthday hats. This morning I bribed** the twins to model them for me…
Its the Turn a Square pattern from Jared Flood. Such a great simple design and perfect for using up those oddments from other projects. The hats are for my Dad and brother, and they’re not really a surprise so its OK to talk about them here. Archie is modelling my Dad’s hat, knit in leftover Rowan Pure Wool DK, leftover from the boys sporty jackets. My Dad has a big head and I made this big, possibly too big. They’re visiting next week, so I can rip out the ribbing and shorten it if necessary. Sam is modelling my brothers hat. This one is knit in leftover Cascade 220 (black) and some random grey-green yarn of unknown origin.
Hooray for warm heads and leftovers!

** It is amazing what a 4 yo will do for a jelly dinosaur.
